Vijay Hazare Trophy 2021-22: Dinesh Karthik, Washington Sundar back in Tamil Nadu squad


Experienced wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik and young all-rounder Washington Sundar were named in Tamil Nadu’s 20-man squad for the Vijay Hazare Trophy cricket tournament.

Karthik missed the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy T20 tournament which Tamil Nadu won in New Delhi on Monday owing to an injury, while Washington Sundar has been out of action since the tour of England earlier this year and was undergoing rehabilitation at the NCA in Bengaluru.

Tamil Nadu, which is in Elite Group ‘B’, will play its preliminary matches in Thiruvananthapuram. It opens its campaign against Mumbai on December 8.

The team will be led by all-rounder Vijay Shankar, who captained the side to triumph in the Mushtaq Ali Trophy, while opener N Jagadeesan has been named his deputy, according to a TNCA release.

Pacer T Natarajan, who returned to the Mushtaq Ali Trophy after a long injury-enforced lay-off, has been ignored.

Sandeep Warrier, M Mohammed, P Saravana Kumar and J Kousik form the pace attack, while the spin department includes the impressive R Sai Kishore, M Ashwin, M Siddharth and R Sanjay Yadav, apart from Washington Sundar.

All-rounder B Aparajith, who is currently with the India ‘A’ team in South Africa, will join the team, if available, at a later date, the release said.

His twin brother B Indrajith, who was not part of the squad for the Mushtaq Ali Trophy, has been included in the team.

The Team: Vijay Shankar (captain), N Jagadeesan (vice-captain), Dinesh Karthik, C Hari Nishaanth, M Shahrukh Khan, R Sai Kishore, M Ashwin, Sandeep Warrier, M S Washington Sundar, M Siddharth, B Sai Sudharsan, V Ganga Sridhar Raju, M Mohammed, J Kousik, P Saravana Kumar, L Suryapprakash, B Indrajith, R Sanjay Yadav, M Kaushik Gandhi, R Silambarasan.
