India national selectors meet in Mumbai to pick the team for the 1st 2 Tests against Australia and decided to drop Gautam Gambhir from the team squad.
In replace of Gautam Gambhir, Shikhar Dhawan and Murali Vijay have been included in the team.
The injuries to the pacemen have seen the selectors pick swing bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the team as well. But the other big surprise is the inclusion of Harbhajan Singh in spite of a pretty ordinary Ranji season.
