Made his T20 debut for India 16 years ago
The specialty of Dinesh Karthik’s innings is the history attached to him, he made his T20 debut for India exactly 16 years ago and now after such a long time has managed to score the first T20 International fifty. Dinesh Karthik was coming with a huge reputation from IPL 2022 with which he has done full justice in the ongoing series. Karthik has not only been a very good finisher in the lower order but can also change the course of the match from the middle order if wickets fall early.
After bowling best for India, Avesh Khan dedicated his performance to his father
suddenly stopped during the interview
After his brilliant innings, when Dinesh Karthik was preparing for fielding, he was interviewed. He chatted with the match broadcaster Star but suddenly stopped during the interview and looked up. His face was full of surprise as soon as Karthik looked up. It seemed like some kind of reaction. After that Karthik stayed for 1-2 seconds, started the conversation again and said, sorry I thought the ball was coming in this direction.

Karthik played a blistering innings of 55 runs off 27 balls and he said that he was absolutely certain that Team India would be able to put up a challenging score. India had lost 3 wickets early in this match and then there was another setback in the form of captain Rishabh Pant. Then India’s score was 81 runs in 12.5 overs for the loss of 4 wickets. From here Karthik’s fireworks started, we saw how he hit nine fours and two sixes and became a key factor in India’s 73 runs in the last 5 overs.
You have to take risk in T20 cricket
Karthik further said, after the way we played in the first 10 overs, it was necessary to adopt the plans in the right way. I’m glad we were able to do that today. I was sure we would get 80-85 runs in the last 7 overs. I was just wondering how to do this. You have to take chances in few overs. In T20 cricket, you have to take risks and get used to it. So I was looking at my options to see where and how much risk I can take.
Waiting for the next match at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru
After Karthik’s excellent batting, the Indian bowlers also bowled well, where Avesh Khan took 4 wickets and and the South African team was dismissed for 87 runs in 16.5 overs.
