Dinesh Karthik is ready to dawn Skipper’s cape for the two warm-up games scheduled to be played against Derbyshire and Northamptonshire ahead of the limited-overs matches starting from Thursday, July 7 2022. Karthik will lead the Indian team as the Test team battle it out against England at Edgbaston which will decide the fate of the Test series that the visitors are leading 2-1.
