“Indian team’s wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik has made a comeback in Team India after a long time. He is playing as a batsman in the team and is seen performing his role of finisher very well. In the fourth T20 against South Africa played in Rajkot, he played a strong half-century for the team in trouble and became the hero of the match.”

“Karthik caught the attention of the selectors with a bang for RCB in this season of IPL. It was because of his innings that he made a place in Team India and now the veteran is telling Karthik as a contender in the team going to the T20 World Cup to be held in Australia. Former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar is so impressed with Karthik’s batting that he always wants to see this player on a flight to Australia.”

“Gavaskar said after the fourth T20 innings, “He came on the field at a time when you had to hit big shots with the bat, other than that you had no choice. Don’t look at his age at all, Pay attention to what he is doing right now. It will be a big surprise if Joe DK doesn’t get on the flight to Melbourne (T20 World Cup to be held in Australia).”

“When Karthik stepped on the field in the fourth T20, the team’s 4 wickets fell for 81 runs. He handled the team along with Hardik Pandya. Together they put on an important partnership of 65 runs for the 5th wicket. With the help of 9 fours and 2 sixes in 27 balls, Karthik scored 55 runs to reach the score of 169 runs for the team.
