Indian left-arm spinner Murali Kartik will be with Lancashire until the end of the season as their overseas replacement for Brad Hodge.

He appeared in the Cheltenham and Gloucester Trophy final and last week’s Liverpool Victoria County Championship game against Warwickshire at Blackpool.

Kartik, in his second spell with Lancashire having taken 16 Championship wickets in the last two games of 2005, has taken over from Hodge, who returned to Australia in late June for the Top End series and a training camp and remained in his homeland thereafter.

Jim Cumbes, Lancashire’s chief executive, said: “We needed to sort out certain documentation so that Kartik could stay with us and this has been completed.”
