New Delhi: Everytime a new cricketer makes it to the Indian team, wishes from cricket fraternity pour in, on social media. This time it was the turn of Punjab pacer Siddharth Kaul, who earned a call-up to the Indian ODI team, that is to play three ODIs against Sri Lanka.

Siddharth, a member of the U-19 World Cup winning team under Virat Kohli, got the call to the national side on the back of some stellar performances in the domestic circuit for a year or two. In 50 first-class matches, Kaul has picked 175 wickets.

His Punjab teammate and India ace Harbhajan Singh congratulated the youngster for making it to the Indian team. He tweeted, "Congratulations my brother @sidkaul22 for getting selected for team INDIA 🇮🇳 @BCCI keep it up.. very happy for you.. All the best 👍."

This year, Kaul has only appeared in two first-class games, but has bagged eight wickets. He had a successful series against New Zealand A, where he got six wickets in two games.
