Pandya congratulated Tamil Nadu Player: India advanced to become the top T20 team in the world after winning all the bilateral T20 series under the leadership of Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid. They took over as full-time captain and coach last year in preparation for the T20 World Cup, which will be held in Australia in October. India’s disappointment at not even making it to the 2022 Asia Cup finals shocked the ecstatic fans.
While everyone, including the captain, agreed that they were 15-20 runs short of losing in the Super 4 round, they were chosen instead of Dinesh Karthik, who could score those runs, and Rishabh Pant, as usual, was the cause of the defeat. In addition to the incorrect selection, the main reason for that defeat was the sudden removal of Dinesh Karthik, who was chosen to play as a finisher after he had met only one ball. Dinesh Karthik has been selected in the Indian team for the T20 World Cup, despite harsh criticism directed at everyone else, including captain Rohit Sharma.
Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel have returned to the squad named by Rohit Sharma. However, with Jadeja out due to injury, the selection of KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant has enraged fans. Similarly, the removal of Sanju Samson and the placement of Mohammed Shami and Deepak Chahar on the stand-by list have angered fans.
On the other hand, Dinesh Karthik, who has been re-selected for this team, has accomplished half his goal. The renowned captain and wicketkeeper Dhoni last participated in the 2019 World Cup. Briefly, they served as a commentator because he was not given a chance in the early going.
Dinesh Karthik, who believed he could succeed in T20 cricket despite everyone else thinking that his Indian career was over, undertook rigorous training to win the T20 World Cup in Australia. In the IPL 2022 series, where stars like Virat Kohli trusted Dinesh Karthik not to cheat and cause a collapse, he came into the field in the lower middle order and batted aggressively. Furthermore, he scored 330 runs at the highest strike rate of 183.33, more than wild batters like Russell, and received the Super Striker award.
So, after three years, he joined the Indian team and was named man of the match in the South African T20 series. The England T20 series that followed saw him perform only mediocrely. Still, the West Indies series saw him perform brilliantly once more. He is currently serving as well as he can with the record of being the Indian player with the most runs and two-man of the match awards in T20 cricket after age 37. Because Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya will also perform when chosen for the Asia Cup, Dinesh Karthik should not be selected solely for that position, according to former Tamil Nadu players Krishnamachari Srikanth.
However, the failure of the Asia Cup demonstrated that not everyone is up to the task. Dinesh Karthik, who began his ambitious journey by attempting to win the T20 World Cup, has already won half by securing a spot in it. Star player Pandya congratulated him, writing on Twitter that his dreams would come true. Let’s see if he can finish his ambitious journey by performing well on Australian soil and winning the trophy.
