Mumbai, June 10 : Wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik, who is out of Team India, will soon be seen in a new role. Karthik will be commentating during the final of the World Test Championship (WTC Final 2021). Karthik has been included in the commentary panel along with Sunil Gavaskar. Though Karthik will now be commentating on the match, his goal is still to make a comeback in Team India.
Dinesh Karthik ‘Sports Keida’ “If you look at my stats in IPL or T20 matches in domestic cricket, I believe I should get a place in Team India 100 per cent. Other things depend on what the members of the selection committee think,” he said.
Dinesh Karthik further said in the interview, “I can contribute to the middle order. The Indian team needs such a player. I have given an example of my game before. If I get a chance to show my skills, Team India has a good chance to win the World Cup.”
Team India will tour Sri Lanka next month. Karthik is ready to go on this tour. Karthik was the finalist of the 2018 Nidhas Trophy tri-series in Sri Lanka. In the final against Bangladesh, Karthik hit an unbeaten 29 off 8 balls. Karthik hit a six off the very last ball to give Team India the title.
Dinesh Karthik has scored 399 runs in 32 international T20 matches at an average of 143.53. He was dropped from Team India after the 2019 Cricket World Cup. Karthik is a member of the Kolkata Knight Riders team. Karthik is all set to take over the captaincy if Eoin Morgan is not available for the rest of the IPL.
