Karthik is a seasoned cricketer who won’t collapse under pressure like many others, according to Kohli. His selection has given India a boost.
Rishabh Pant was dropped and Dinesh Karthik was chosen by the BCCI selection committee to be part of the 15-member squad of India who is set for the World Cup. The Cup will start on May 30th in England, and India will have their first match on June 5th.
If because of bad luck something happens to Dhoni, Karthik can be our savior. He is also a great finisher, says Virat. Kohli seems to have ample faith in his team.
Sourav Ganguly had criticized the committee’s decision of dropping Pant, adding that it is a mistake and India might suffer unforeseen consequences. Pant has performed reasonably well throughout the IPL and T-20 matches. Although, Karthik has been part of the Indian cricket team for 15 years and has shown his caliber in all sorts of situation.
