Indian Test cricketer Murali Kartik has signed to play for Lancashire for the rest of the season.

The all-rounder has recently returned from a tour of Zimbabwe with the Indian squad.

Lancashire cricket manager Mike Watkinson said: "The recent injury to Gary Keedy has limited our options in the spin department and Kartik is a similar style bowler who will give us more depth for the remaining games of the season."

He added, "We are glad that a player of his quality has joined us at such short notice."

Kartik has played in eight Tests and 19 one-day internationals. He has taken 278 first-class wickets at an average of 26.17 with a best of nine for 70 for the Rest of India v Mumbai in 2000.
