Off-spinner Daniel Cullen will replace the injured Stuart Clark in Australia's Champions Trophy squad.
Cullen learnt of his selection during a practice match between South Australia and Tasmania and was over the moon.
This came out of the blue but naturally I'm really excited about the opportunity, he said. It's really disappointing for Stuart to miss out with an injury and I'm sure that everyone wishes him the best for a speedy recovery. However, it's now up to me to take this opportunity and put my best foot forward for the team and I'm really looking forward to going to India.
Seam bowler Clark was ruled out Wednesday with a thigh injury he suffered last weekend playing club cricket.
