The selection committee has picked up R Vinay Kumar as Kulkarni's replacement in the 15-member squad for the upcoming series starting in Kochi on November 21.
"Dhawal Kulkarni has sustained a foot injury. The All-India Senior Selection Committee has picked Vinay Kumar as his replacement in the Indian squad for the Star Plus India v West Indies ODI series 2013," BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel said in a release.
On Tuesday, the selection committee had dropped out-of-form pacers Ishant Sharma and Vinay Kumar, and in their place named Kulkarni and Haryana pacer Mohit Sharma.
In 2009, just six months after his first-class debut, Kulkarni had toured New Zealand with India but was not selected for any match.
