Selectors opted for Dinesh Karthik ahead of Rishabh Pant as backup wicket-keeper for 2019 World Cup.
He was hit on the neck in the nets on Wednesday.
He also lauded Rishabh Pant for his special abilities.
Recently Karthik had more reasons to cheer and he made the cut for the World Cup in England and Wales.
"He can play a Kedar Jadhav finisher’s role."
He is also ready to take up any role that the team management assigns him.
The KKR batsmen have failed to live up to expectation in the last few games.
A couple of players, who were expected to be picked for the World Cup, have been left out.
He was picked as the backup wicketkeeper for MS Dhoni.
MSK Prasad-led selection panel preferred Karthik's experience over Pant's exuberance of youth in the World Cup.
