India recall Karthik to replace injured Pandey

Champions Trophy 2017

Wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik has been called up to India´s squad for next month´s Champions Trophy, replacing the injured Manish Pandey, the country´s cricket board (BCCI) said on Thursday.

Karthik has scored prolifically in the domestic season, including 704 runs in the Ranji Trophy and 361 runs for Gujarat Lions in the IPL.

Pandey, who represents the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), had missed Wednesday's eliminator against Sunrisers Hyderabad due to the injury.

He last played for India in the second T20I against England in January earlier this year. His last ODI was during the five-match series at home against New Zealand, which India won 3-2.

General Motors to stop selling vehicles in India, focus on exports
GM's exports from India - mainly to Mexico and Latin America - almost doubled to 70,969 vehicles during the fiscal ended March 31. Talegaon production capacity now stands at around 1.3 lakh vehicles a year which can be further expanded to 1.7 lakh units.

Suresh Raina, Rishabh Pant, Kuldeep Yadav and Shardul Thakur were the others the reserves list, just in case those in the squad broke down at the end of a busy season.

The Tamil Nadu wicketkeeper-batsman Karthik had last played in India colours in the Asia Cup contest against Afghanistan in 2014.

It is a blow for Virat Kohli's India too as Pandey was in form and seemed to be the understudy to Kedar Jadhav. He scored 396 runs at an average of over 49 and a strike rate of 128.57 but now has also been ruled out of the IPL.

The Champions Trophy is scheduled to be held between June 1-18, with India set to open their campaign with a match against Pakistan on June 4. They are in Group B with South Africa and Sri Lanka in the eight-team tournament.
