Dinesh Karthik replaces injured Manish Pandey in India's Champions Trophy squad

Dinesh Karthik replaces injured Manish Pandey in India's Champions Trophy squad

Seasoned wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik was on Thursday called as a replacement for injured batsman Manish Pandey for next month's International Cricket Council (ICC) Champions Trophy.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik has earned a recall to India's one-day global squad for the upcoming Champions Trophy, replacing injured Manish Pandey, the country's cricket board said. In 14 matches, Karthik scored 361 runs at an impressive average of 36 and strike rate of nearly 140, for The Gujarat Lions.

Pandey was ruled out due to a left side strain during Kolkata Knight Riders' practice session before its Indian Premier League eliminator against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Wednesday. Find us on Facebook too!

Karthik was one of the five stand-byes and has been rewarded for his stupendous form in the domestic cricket last season. The Tamil Nadu batsman, with 607 runs from nine matches at an impressive average of 86.71, was the highest run-scorer in the Vijay Hazare Trophy.

Having played 23 Tests and 71 ODIs for India, Karthik pipped another glovesman Rishabh Pant, who was also a part of the reserves.

Karthik was part of the Indian team that won the previous edition of the Champions Trophy in 2013 but hasn't played for the Men in Blue since March 2014. They are in Group B with South Africa and Sri Lanka in the eight-team tournament.
