India's young fast-bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar has received his first Test call-up for the four-match series against Australia starting on February 22 at Chennai.

With Zaheer Khan, Umesh Yadav and Irfan Pathan recovering from injuries, the selectors opted to give rookie paceman Bhuvneshwar , who impressed in the limited overs-series against England and Pakistan, his maiden Test call.

Bhuvneshwar performed impressively in the two One-Day International series against England and Pakistan to earn a chance to represent India in the longest format of the game.
