Somewhere in India’s better wicket-keeping hunt in early 2000, Dinesh Karthik came into the scenes. Extremely quick and attentive behind the stumps, Karthik has a graceful batting style. He can play a conventional square-drive as well as a scoop over fine leg. He, in fact, knows how to come to terms with the modern dynamics of the cricket game.
After spending around two years in the domestic games, Karthik made his way to India’s ODI playing 11 in the year 2004, he replaced the struggling Parthiv Patel. When the Council Spotted his talent, he was shortly drafted into the Test team as well.
However, like the previous wicket-keeper-batsmen, Karthik’s inconsistency became a great complications in his bouncing career. With a power-hitter like MS Dhoni at India’s disposal, Karthik could actually never cement his place.
