Krishna Kumar Dinesh Karthik
(Indian Cricketer)

Born in Tamil Nadu, Dinesh Karthik was a specialist batsman at junior level and garnered wicket keeping skills to fancy his chances. He made his debut in 2004 and since then has been a member of Indian team either as a specialist batsman or a wicket-keeper batsman.

His dipping form and injuries cost him his place in the team and with Mahendra Singh Dhoni coming into picture, Karthik gradually lost his place to Dhoni in all three formats. He plays domestic cricket for Tamil Nadu and scores heavily.

His knock of unbeaten 29 runs off 8 deliveries against Bangladesh during the final of the 2018 Nidahas Trophy is one of his greatest performance in T20I. He captained Kolkata Knight Riders for the first time in IPL 2018 and took his team to third position.[/vc[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3"]_c[/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_section el_class=”player-single-wrap”][vc_row msp_template=”player-page”][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]table id="customers">
