Dinesh Karthik was on the commentary assignment last summer in England when Indian was playing test series in England. Most of cricket pundits thought that his international career is over but Karthik has proven them wrong. He has been selected in the India’s T20I team for series against South Africa which starts from June 9. He has been rewarded because of his rich form in ongoing IPL 2022 where he has been performing the job of a finisher for RCB. His batting has been of high class and has performed in almost all matches.
He has scored 324 runs for RCB this season in 15 innings with an outstanding average of 64.80 and at a strike rate of 187.28. He has proved once again that if determination and dedication are in place, nothing is impossible.
Former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar has hailed Dinesh Karthik and said he has followed Karthik’s career closely and is entitled for the praise.
While talking to Sportskeeda, Shoaib Akhtar said, “I usually avoid speaking about people’s personal lives. What I want to say here is that he had suffered some setbacks in his personal life, but he came back really well after that. I have followed his personal life and read quite a bit about it. And I really like how he has come back. I would say well done to him. This is what attitude is all about,”
“It’s a big thing. Dinesh Karthik is a player from my era. He’s really fit and mentally strong. Good things happen to good people. Great to see the way he has made a comeback to the Indian team. My best wishes are with him,” Shoaib added.
