Karthik to switch injured Saha for third South Africa…”

Saha, who set an Indian record for the most number of catches and dismissals in a Test (10) in the series opener at Cape Town, suffered the injury two days before the second Test got under way.

Regular Test wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha has been ruled out of the third and final Test against South Africa due to a hamstring injury and will be replaced by Dinesh Karthik in the squad. BCCI has made it clear that Saha can not play in the third Test as well.

Saha was left out of the second Test also with Parthiv Patel taking his place in the ongoing Centurion Test where the Gujarat stumper's work with the big gloves has left a lot to be desired.

Team India are likely to replace wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha with Parthiv Patel for the second Test of the ongoing three-match series against South Africa in Centurion, starting Saturday (January 13).

As a result, Karthik will be hoping to play in his first Test match since January 2010 when the third Test commences on January 24 in Johannesburg.

Despite India captain Virat Kohli clarifying at the toss that Saha had been left out because of a hamstring niggle, many considered it "a bluff" to include Parthiv and "strengthen" batting. His progress will now be monitored by the BCCI medical team. He didn't had impressive outings for the side in the first Test where he finished with the scores of 0, 8 respectively in the first two games.

He is also a part of the ODI squad which will play the 6-match ODI series against South Africa following the Tests.

Bhuvneshwar picked up six wickets and hit a handy 25 off 86 balls in the second innings after the top order had failed.

The 32-year-old Karthik has played 23 Tests for India but his last appearance in the longer format was back in 2010 against Bangladesh.
