Kapil Dev lavishes huge praise on Karthik


IND vs SA Live: IND vs SA 3rd T20I Live – Legendary cricketer Kapil Dev has reserved huge praise for India’s finisher Dinesh Karthik. The wicketkeeper-batter has been in some phenomenal form in the IPL 2022 and in the ongoing T20 series against South Africa. Walking in at a crunch situation in the second T20I, Karthik blitzed to 21 balls unbeaten 30 runs. Kapil feels the finisher has forced the selectors to think that ‘look you can’t ignore me.’ Follow IND vs SA Live Updates with InsideSport.IN.

“This time he has performed so well that he has forced the selectors to think that ‘look, you can’t ignore me’. Rishabh Pant is a youngster, he has plenty of cricket. Dinesh Karthik has experience and performance, which is why I would say, that no praise is enough for him,” Kapil told Uncut.

After India’s 4-wicket loss in the 2nd T20 in Cuttack, former greats called for big changes to stop a 0-7 losing streak against South Africa.

IND vs SA Live: Dinesh Karthik sizzles in the finisher role against South Africa

  • The wicketkeeper-batter smoked a 21-ball unbeaten 30 runs in the second T20I against South Africa in Cuttack
  • Karthik took his time to start but was up and running in the last two overs. At one stage India were struggling to get 150
  • The 37-year-old’s cameo helped India post a respectable total of 149 for 6 in the 20 overs
  • As Kapil Dev pointed out, Karthik has loads of experience playing at the international level
  • Currently, India has only Hardik Pandya as the team’s designated finisher. But with Karthik acing the finisher role, he could well possibly play the T20 World Cup 2022 in the same role
