New Delhi: Dinesh Karthik is likely to get a shot as a replacement for the injured wicket keeper Wriddhiman Saha for the encounter against Afghanistan in Bengaluru from June 14.

According to the sources, MSK Prasad and Co is looking at the England tour, where Karthik could make his comeback in the longest format. Karthik had played a Test match way back in 2010 against Bangladesh but has had a successful record with 27 hundreds and over 9000 runs.

In 23 tests for India, he has scored 1000 runs with a hundred and seven half centuries. Earlier opener Lokesh Rahul had said that he is ready to take on the role of the wicket keeper, if the team demands.
