India have flown in Dinesh Karthik as a stand-by player for injured Virender Sehwag as the visitors gear up for Tuesday's last league match of the Asia Cup against Sri Lanka.

The stumper batsman arrived here this morning as Sehwag pulled his right hamstring during the match against Pakistan and is a doubtful starter.

"We flew in Karthik as a standby for Sehwag. But we will have to await the Asian Cricket Council's clearance to play him in tomorrow's match against Sri Lanka," said Team India manager Ranjib Biswal.

If Sehwag is ruled out of the remainder of the Asia Cup, he will return home for treatment.
