Dhawal Kulkarni is a right-arm medium pacer who first made headlines for his performance in Mumbai U-17s Vijay Merchant Trophy, 2005-06. In his first Ranji season, he emerged as the most successful bowler claiming 42 wickets. He kept up with his good work in U- 19 state matches which bagged him a spot in the India U-19 tour of Sri Lanka in 2007. With his gallant form in Sri Lanka, he earned a place into the Mumbai Ranji Squad.

Early breakthroughs being his speciality, it earned him a place in the Test squad for the tour of New Zealand in 2009. However, he did not play in any of those matches. Later, he was signed by the Mumbai team in the Indian T20 league team. He impressed everyone by his performances while playing for the Mumbai team and bagging up 36 wickets in 33 matches. He was also the spearhead bowler for the Mumbai Ranji team in the 2011-12 season. But due to a foot injury, Kulkarni could not play the latter half of the 2013-14 Ranji season which made Mumbai's bowling attack look toothless. With injuries all gone, Kulkarni will be set to play for his new team Rajasthan in the 2014 season of Indian T20 league, who bought him for a big price of Rs. 1.1 crore.
