IND vs SA: Dinesh Kartik can make a comeback to the Indian team after having a dream run in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Representing Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL, the wicketkeeper-batsman has been one of the best finishers of the tournament.
Dinesh Kartik has scored 202 runs in 7 innings with an astonishing average of 202 and a strike rate of 204. The average of DK tells how well he has finished games. Dinesh also said in an interview that “I am doing everything I can to make a comeback in the team”.
India will play a series against South Africa as soon as the IPL season ends. The selectors are considering Dinesh. This series will be very important as it will help sort out the team combination for the T20 WORLD CUP in Australia which is to be played in October this year.
Sunil Gavaskar encouraged him to play finisher in the T20 World Cup in Australia in October, but it’s still too early to tell.
“He stated that he aspires to be a part of the Indian T20 World Cup team. So, instead of looking at his age, take a look at what he’s creating. With his performance, he’s just changing the game’s complexion. He’s doing it for the sake of his team. He’s performing the job you’d expect him to do at number 6 or 7 in the (T20) World Cup (in October-November),” said Sunil Gavaskar.
Dinesh Karthik’s comeback will be a dream comeback for him considering his age and also the fact that he was unsold in the first round of auction. Now it is up to Dinesh Kartik how he plays the remaining matches of the tournament. If he has a consistent tournament throughout. Indian comeback is always on cards.
