Parthiv Rahul set to play in Centurion Ishant may replace Bhuvneshwar Report

The BCCI said Saha, who claimed 10 catches in the first Test in Cape Town, "suffered an upper left hamstring tendon injury" during training last Thursday.

Injured Wriddhiman Saha out, Dinesh Karthik Roped in for Coming 3rd Test: - Well, Indian vs.

Saha, the first choice Test wicketkeeper since MS Dhoni retired in 2014, missed the second Test due a hamstring injury.

Wriddhiman Saha has been ruled out of the series and Dinesh Karthik will be flying to South Africa to join the Indian team. "He is set to join the team before the third Test", BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary said in a statement.

Karthik, who made his Test debut in 2004, played his last Test almost eight years ago, against Bangladesh.

Treasury watchdog finds no political pressure on tax analysis
Treasury would achieve that, the lawmakers surmised in the letter, by pushing the IRS to change its formula for withholdings. Currently, the IRS is revising that tool to reflect the most recent tax law changes.

In a tense second innings, Dean Elgar was on 29 and South Africa 70 for 2 when Parthiv did not go for a catch to his left.

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 BCCI Medical Team will continue to monitor his progress", concluded BCCI.

Karthik, who has featured in 23 Tests, will make a comeback in the national side after a long gap of seven years.

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.

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. He has also chipped in with useful contributions with the bat in the ODI and Twenty20 matches for India this season. Murali Vijay's wife, Nikita Vijay first married Dinesh Karthik and then the two got divorced in the year 2012.
