Karthik yet to be approved

London: ICC is yet to approve Dinesh Kathick's as a replacement for an injured Virender Sehwag because of a major procedural gaffe on the part of BCCI.

The BCCI submitted physio Nitin Patel's report instead of a doctor's to seek a replacement for Sehwag, who has been ruled out of the T20 World Cup because of a shoulder injury.

ICC stated that it will clear Karthick's name only after receiving a doctor's report citing Sehwag's injury, it has been learnt.

Sehwag carried a Grade I shoulder injury to England and missed the warm-up games as well as the lung opener against Bangladesh on June 6 and was ruled out from the tournament on Tuesday.
