All-rounder Vijay Shankar will captain Tamil Nadu in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy in place of an injured Dinesh Karthik. The Tamil Nadu Cricket Association made the announcement that Shankar has been handed over the captain’s baton while N Jagadeesan will be his deputy for the tournament. Karthik will be replaced by Adithya Ganesh in the squad. 

“Dinesh Karthik is said to be suffering from a knee injury,” Tamil Nadu selection committee chief S Vasudevan told PTI.

“The state senior selection committee of the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association has replaced Adithya Ganesh in place of injured Dinesh Karthik, to play in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy for the Season 2021-2022,” TNCA said.

Apart from Karthik, all-rounder Washington Sundar will also miss the fixtures as he is still recovering from a finger injury that he sustained on the England tour. The left-arm fast bowler T Natarajan has been included in the squad that comprises 20 members. 

Tamil Nadu will play their first match of the competition against Maharashtra on November 4.
