Tamil Nadu on Tuesday picked experienced wicketkeeper-batter Dinesh Karthik and all-rounder Washington Sundar in a 20-man squad for the Vijay Hazare Trophy cricket tournament.

Sandeep Warrier, M Mohammed, P Saravana Kumar and J Kousik form the pace attack while spin department includes the impressive R Sai Kishore, M Ashwin, M Siddharth and R Sanjay Yadav, apart from Washington Sundar.
