India vs South Africa: Gavaskar questions India's team selection for 2nd Test

India is now struggling with their team selections in the on-going Test series against South Africa.

Saha, who is not part of the playing XI in the ongoing second Test, picked up the injury while training on Thursday (January 11).

India have called up Dinesh Karthik to replace fellow wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha for the ongoing Test series against South Africa.

Saha scored zero and eight, but took 10 catches behind the stumps in the opening match of the three-Test series at Cape Town, which India lost by 72 runs.

Saha took five catches in the first innings to result in the dismissals of Dean Elgar, Hashim Amla, Faf du Plessis, Quinton de Kock and Kagiso Rabada in the first innings.

Pint-sized Gujarat wicketkeeper-batsman Parthiv Patel, who is universally acknowledged as a far more accomplished batsman than Saha, is set to get a look-in along with Karnataka opener KL Rahul.

The team management's decision to include Rahul comes after Dhawan struggled against short balls in Centurion, thereby failing to give the team good starts in both the innings. Behind the wicket, Parthiv spilled out a number of opportunities.

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.

Karthik has also been included in India's squad for the six-match ODI series, which begins on February 1 in Durban.

In the same year Murali Vijay and Nikita exchanged marriage vows and the equation between Murali Vijay and Dinesh Karthik went for a complete overhaul.

South Africa, on the other hand, were forced into a change as local boy Lungi Ngidi has been handed a debut cap to replace an injured Dale Steyn in the line-up.

Twitter Reactions:Murali vijay and dinesh karthik on same dressing room or team.they are not in talking term i think.
