Karthik has scripted yet another comeback into the Indian team, this time for the five-match T20I series against South Africa in June, on the back of scintillating finishing touches for Royal Challengers Bangalore in league stage of IPL 2022.
The Royals skipper needs to let his bat do the talking in the big games.
India's next assignment is a five-match T20 series against South Africa at home from June 9 to 19, followed by a tour of Ireland for two T20Is.
The five matches will take place across 11 days, concluding with the final game at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
India failed to qualify for the semifinals in Shastri's final assignment as Team India head coach.
The Indian captain was all praise for the wicketkeeper-batter ahead of the T20I series against Sri Lanka.
The Indian head coach added that the focus will be on giving players as many opportunities as possible on the road to the T20 World Cup.
The 27-year-old is one of the two stumpers in the squad along with Ishan Kishan for the Sri Lanka series.
Sabu called for the arrest of the CPM legislator and the seizure of his phones over the brutal murder of the 38-year-old.
Twenty20 is in power in four panchayats in the area. Whenever some developmental work is carried out in the panchayats, the MLA arrives there and obstructs the activity, Sabu said.
