“Dinesh Karthik Optimistic About T20 World Cup Selection: ‘I’ll Do Everything I Can to Be on That Flight'”

Dinesh Karthik is optimistic about earning a spot in India’s squad for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024. Despite nearly two years since his last international appearance, Karthik is showcasing impressive form in the ongoing Indian Premier League season.

With 226 runs in six innings at an average of 75.33 and a striking rate of 205.45, Karthik’s performances for Royal Challengers Bengaluru are making a strong case for his inclusion in the T20I squad ahead of the T20 World Cup.

Expressing his eagerness to represent India in the tournament, Karthik emphasized his readiness and commitment to the team’s cause. He acknowledged the responsibility of the selection committee led by Rahul Dravid, Rohit Sharma, and Ajit Agarkar, stating his respect for their decisions.

While the wicketkeeper spot in India’s squad remains competitive, Karthik’s ability to deliver big hits in the death overs adds value to his candidacy. His consistent performances, including two half-centuries this IPL season, underscore his proficiency as a finisher.

Karthik’s strategic approach to batting, visualizing field placements, and practicing shots tailored to specific situations reflect his dedication and preparedness for the challenges ahead. With the T20 World Cup drawing near, Karthik aims to further strengthen his case through continued stellar performances in the IPL.

As the deadline for squad announcements approaches, Karthik remains focused on maximizing his opportunities and contributing effectively to Royal Challengers Bengaluru’s success, while keeping his aspirations for an international comeback alive.
