In-form left-arm spinner Murali Kartik will take the place of injured leg-spinner Piyush Chawla for India's one-off Twenty20 cricket international against Australia in Mumbai on Saturday.

Kartik, who captured six wickets in the final one-day international against the Aussies to guide India to a memorable win in Mumbai, was rewarded for his good showing as the selectors on Friday agreed on his name for Chawla's replacement, BCCI Secretary Niranjan Shah said in a statement.
