Washington Sundar to return to action with Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy for Tamil Nadu


The Tamil Nadu squad will be led by Dinesh Karthik and also includes Vijay Shankar, Natarajan, Shahrukh Khan, among others

Washington Sundar, the India allrounder, has been named in Tamil Nadu’s squad of 20 for the season-opening Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy T20s starting November 4. Washington is currently recovering from a finger injury that forced him to miss the Test series in England as well the IPL and the T20 World Cup in the UAE.

Tamil Nadu are the defending champions, having beaten Baroda in the final of the 2020-21 edition in Ahmedabad earlier this year. The squad will be led by Dinesh Karthik, who has been part of both their title wins, with allrounder Vijay Shankar as his deputy. Vijay has been out of action in the ongoing IPL after being forced out by virtue of being a close contact of fast bowler T Natarajan, who is recovering from Covid-19.

Natarajan, too, is part of the Tamil Nadu squad, looking to revive his career that appears to have hit a roadblock after the highs of Australia earlier this year, having been sidelined by injuries. He was forced to miss the home series against England in March due to a knee injury.
