Dinesh Karthik focuses back on IPL

Drafted into India's World Cup squad as a back-up wicket-keeper, Kolkata Knight Riders captain Dinesh Karthik feels spotlight will be back on Indian Premier League (IPL) since the selectors have picked the 15-man squad for the main event.

Theories were overflowing that Karthik's World Cup dreams are over after the selectors dropped him for the five-match ODI series at home against Australia - India's last task before the World Cup.

The MSK Prasad-drove selection board had named Rishabh Pant in the squad for the Australia series, in this way implying the youngster may make the cut for the World Cup rather than Karthik. Be that as it may, with his immense experience, the Tamil Nadu gloves-man pipped Pant in the 15-member squad for the World Cup last Monday.

"Now that the team has been picked all those have been part of team have been announced, I think the focus back on IPL. I think everything is back on track," Karthik told reporters.
