Twitter Reacts As Dinesh Karthik Makes Well-Deserved Return To Indian T20I Squad

/

Indian wicket-keeper batter Dinesh Karthik was named in India’s T20I squad for their upcoming 5-match home series against South Africa. The move was highly appreciated as Karthik had rightfully earned his place with excellent performances for RCB in the ongoing IPL 2022 season.

Karthik had been dropped from the T20I squad after a string of poor performances. He had set his sights on returning to the squad for the T20 World Cup last year but couldn’t make it due to a lack of opportunities.

He was bought for INR 5 crores by the RCB franchise in the mega auction and he has reposed their faith in him. So far, he has scored 287 runs at an average of 57.54 playing as a specialist finisher.

His strike rate of 191.33 has what made him a viable candidate to play in the lower order of the Indian team which currently lacks finishers apart from the likes of Hardik Pandya, who also makes a return to the squad.

This will mark Karthik’s return to the Indian team in any format after the 2019 ODI World Cup. His last T20I was against Australia back on February 27, 2019. Expectedly, the fans were happy to see him back in the Blue jersey.
