Bengaluru, February 17: In three days, Karnataka will take on Jammu & Kashmir in the quarterfinals of the Ranji Trophy in Jammu.

Considering the heavy workload from a fruitful tour of New Zealand, the Team India support staff has asked start wicket-keeper batsman KL Rahul to rest before the home ODI series against South Africa, starting March 12.

A few days ago to bolster the batting line-up, it was believed that Rahul will join India team-mate Manish Pandey in the state team for the knockout game but now, Karun Nair will continue to lead the squad without his star opener.

Team: Karun Nair (Captain), Samarth R, Devdutt Padikkal, Manish Pandey, Pavan Deshpande, Sharath Srinivas (WK), Shreyas Gopal, Gowtham K, Mithun A, Siddharth KV, Prasidh M Krishna, Suchith J, Prateek Jain, Ronit More, Sharath BR (WK).
