Will Dinesh Karthik Make It To The Indian Team For T20 World Cup? 

Dinesh Karthik has started knocking on the door of the national team again. When Royal Challengers Bangalore bought the former captain of Kolkata Knight Riders for Rs 5.5 crore in this auction, many thought that Virat Kohli’s team would suffer. It was reasonable to think of Karthik, who had repeatedly failed for the Knights. But Karthik started throwing that argument off the field from the first match.

Karthik was confident. A few months ago, when India was playing a Test series in England, Karthik was a commentator. He is proving his skills in the hands of Mike. In an interview to the media at the time, Karthik said, “I will comment next time when I see that there is no obstacle in my cricket career. My only dream is to play for India again. ”

Many may have laughed at that time. Thought it was a dream. There is Rishabh Pant, Ishan Kishan is being made. Where will Karthik play in such a situation? But IPL 2022 is recognizing Karthik anew. In the devastating rhythm that Karthik is running, it should come as no surprise to see him at the Twenty20 World Cup in Australia in October-November.

So far, Karthik has played 12 matches in the IPL. He scored 264 runs with a strike rate of 200. He was unbeaten in eight innings. Half a century has come. This time he has proved himself as a finisher in the IPL.

Karthik has made such an impact on the RCB team that Faf Du Plessis said at the end of the match: “I thought I would be out, or leave the field to bring Karthik to the crease.” Du Plessis said this after Karthik made 30 runs from 8 balls.

Karthik last played white ball cricket on the international stage in 2019. After that he failed to bat for Kolkata in IPL and lost the lead. As he started commenting, many people thought that Karthik would pick up the bat this time. But the 2022 IPL surprised all. 

Former national selector Debang Gandhi said, “Experts think it will be difficult for Karthik to get a chance in the 15-man squad just as a batsman. Even if it is in rhythm, there are questions about whether he will be included in that team or not. But if Panth or Rahul gets injured, Karthik will definitely get a chance.”
