New Delhi. Dinesh Karthik has impressed everyone with his performance in T20. In IPL 2022, he scored runs at a strike rate of more than 180. Due to this he got a place in Team India for the 5-match T20 series against South Africa (IND vs SA). He was successful in making a place in the Indian team after 3 years. In the fourth T20, he played an important role in winning the team by scoring 55 runs in 27 balls. This is the first half-century of 37-year-old Karthik’s 16-year T20 International career. Since then, the demand for giving him a chance in the T20 World Cup has intensified.
Select player by reputation or name
Former Indian legend Sunil Gavaskar said on Star Sports during the fourth T20, I know people are talking about how you can include him in the team when he is not playing consistently. How do you see if he is able to play? He can be the player you want. You look at someone’s form. No one chooses the player on the basis of reputation or name. Don’t go by his age. Although Gavaskar did not name anyone, it is believed to be a reply to Gautam Gambhir’s statement.
Sunil Gavaskar said that Dinesh Karthik doesn’t get many chances
Sunil Gavaskar said that Dinesh Karthik does not get many opportunities. He bats at number 6 and 7. You can’t expect him to score 50 all the time. He can give you 40 runs in 20 balls. He is doing this continuously. And did the same thing again in the fourth T20. This is the reason why he is close to getting a place in the World Cup team. He said that the way he was scoring runs in the fourth T20. It is clear that he is eager to play for India again.
