Indian wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha has been ruled out of the historic one-off Test match against Afghanistan in Bengaluru on June 14.

BCCI has named Dinesh Karthik as Saha's replacement, ahead of Parthiv Patel.

Karthik, 33, who last played a Test for India back in 2010, has played 23 Tests, scoring 1000 runs with one century and seven fifties.

India squad: Ajinkya Rahane (capt), Shikhar Dhawan, M Vijay, KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Karun Nair, Dinesh Karthik (wk), R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Hardik Pandya, Ishant Sharma, Shardul Thakur
