Dinesh Karthik made his debut for Team India in 2004 but he could not cement his place in Team India after the initial few years and kept going in and out of the team.
When the Indian team was announced for the T20 series against South Africa, everyone was surprised at one name in it. That’s because this player was rejected by everyone. No one expected that this player could return to the team again, but on the basis of his hard work and tremendous game in IPL-2022, this player once again made a place in the team. This player is none other than Dinesh Karthik (Dinesh Karthik) is. You are wondering why Dinesh Karthik’s talk at all. So let us tell you that today i.e. Wednesday, June 1 is the birthday of this player (Dinesh Karthik Bday). Kartik is celebrating his 37th birthday.
Karthik’s name is taken among those players who never agree. This player went out of Team India many times but made a strong comeback every time. This time, Karthik’s career was said to be over. There were reasons for this too, but this player made a comeback defying everyone.
Impressed in IPL-2022
Karthik last played the semi-finals of the 2019 ODI World Cup for Team India. After that he was thrown out. His performance was also not special. As the captain of Kolkata Knight Riders, Karthik’s bat failed and captaincy too. In such a situation, cricket experts had told the roads for Team India closed for Karthik. Karthik also commented on Sky Sports during India’s tour of England last year. This led to speculations that Karthik had taken himself out of Team India’s race, but when everyone was sitting in the misunderstanding that Karthik would not return to the Indian team, then his old team Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL-2022. Returning, this right-handed batsman showed a strong game. So strong that the selectors had to take Karthik in the team.
This season Karthik played 16 matches and scored 330 runs. During this his strike rate was 183 runs. Karthik played the role of a finisher for Bangalore and Team India needed a finisher in T20. This is where Karthik got his upper hand, which resulted in his return to Team India.
associated with struggles
When Karthik was running out of Team India, he took help from former Mumbai cricketer Abhishek Nair. Abhishek made a new schedule for Karthik and took this batsman out of his comfort zone. Kartik worked hard with Abhishek in Mumbai. The result of this was seen. No one can forget the innings he played against Bangladesh in the final of the Nidahas Trophy. Karthik could never cement his place in Team India but this player never lost his courage.
In personal life too, Karthik suffered a lot. He was first married to Nikita but the love story of Karthik’s Tamil Nadu teammate Murali Vijay and Nikita blossomed and Karthik divorced Nikita. After this, Karthik married squash player Deepik Pallikal.
Like cricket, even in love did not give up
To get Deepik, Karthik rolled a lot of papads. Deepika had told about this in a show. He had told that the two met in the gym and Karthik had asked him to go on a date. At first Deepika wanted to postpone but then agreed. The first date of these two was for one hour but lasted for four hours. After this, Karthik reached England behind Deepika. Seeing Karthik’s love, Deepika said yes to him and in today’s time both have become parents too.
