Dinesh Karthik’s Career: After suffering a back injury against South Africa, Dinesh Karthik’s availability for the Super 12 match against Bangladesh was in doubt.
Despite this, he recovered in time and once again held the wicket-keeping gloves for team India ahead of Rishabh Pant.
Prior to Wednesday, Karthik failed to make an impact with the bat in two opportunities, so it was a big game for him to prove his worth.
In contrast to the previous two outings, Karthik looked more confident when he came to bat after Hardik Pandya’s wicket fell in the 15.1 overs.
A boundary flick showed how confident he was with this gameplay against Bangladesh, but a horrible mix-up with Virat Kohli ended his innings.
Dinesh Karthik was batting on 7 from five balls when Virat Kohli hit the ball straight to extra cover.
When Kohli called for a quick single, Karthik, who was batting at non-striker’s end, started running, but Kohli immediately sent him back when he realized there wasn’t a run.
Dinesh Karthik tried to reach the non-striker’s end, but he didn’t get back in time as Shakib Al Hasan threw the ball to the bowler Shoriful Islam, who hit the stumps.
Dinesh Karthik was dismissed for just seven runs in the showpiece event in Australia. In this edition of the T20 World Cup, he managed only 15 runs from three innings.
After watching just a few replays, the third umpire adjudged Karthik run-out because the ball struck the stumps before the bowler’s hands. Replays, however, revealed a completely different story.
The umpire’s decision left fans furious. Dinesh Karthik’s Indian career has been ended by former captain Virat Kohli, according to some. A mix-up between Dinesh Karthik and Virat Kohli led to Dinesh’s controversial run-out, as seen on Twitter:
