Veteran Joshi to lead KSCA XI

Uthappa to represent Air India

The State will have three representative sides in its own competition, with all-rounder C Raghu leading the KSCA President’s XI and batsman Sudhindra Shinde in charge of the KSCA Colts XI. 

K Sanath Kumar has been appointed coach of the KSCA XI and PV Shashikanth of the President’s XI, perhaps an indication that the pair is in the running to succeed Vijay Bharadwaj as the State coach for the first-class season ahead.
