IPL 2018: KKR's injured Kamlesh Nagarkoti replaced by Prasidh
Kolkata: Two-time Indian Premier League (IPL) champions Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) young pacer Kamlesh Nagarkoti was on Saturday ruled out for the season with a foot injury, a statement said.
The 2018 U-19 World Cup winner will be replaced by Karnataka fast bowler Prasidh Krishna. Prasidh has represented Karnataka in domestic Cricket and this will be his first stint in the IPL.
Nagarkoti picked up the injury before the start of the tournament and the wary franchise had summoned Prasidh as a backup option and even played him in the two practice matches where he fared well.
Prasidh made his first-class debut for Karnataka in 2015 and picked up five wickets against the touring Bangladesh A team in Mysore.
The right-arm pacer has gone on to feature in 19 List A games, picking up 33 wickets.
