England handed over big responsibility to Dinesh Karthik, will plan against India only

Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik has been appointed batting consultant to England Lions, who will play three four-day matches followed by a two-day practice match against India A from January 12 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The England team is ready for a 5-match test series against India. Before this series starts on January 25, the England Lions will play a practice match against India A in Ahmedabad. For this, Dinesh Karthik will help England Lions in planning against India.

Leading the charge as head coach will be England men's elite pace bowling coach Neil Killeen, who demonstrated his leadership skills during the Lions' tour of Sri Lanka last year. Dinesh Karthik, who has a deep understanding of Indian conditions, is joining Killen in the coaching lineup for the Lions.

India's experienced international wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik will share his plans with the team for the first 9 days of this tour. England Men's Performance Director Mo Bobat said it is great to have such a strong coaching group supporting our players in what will be an exciting challenge against India A.

He said that Neil Killen had done an excellent job leading the Lions in Sri Lanka last year and he would again take over the responsibility of head coach. Former England internationals Ian Bell and Graeme Swann are also part of the coaching staff, bringing with them a wealth of knowledge and experiences from playing in India.
