IPL 2022: Dinesh Karthik finished inning in style, smashed quick 30 in just 8 balls| oneindia hindi
RCB got ruthless after Kohli’s duck-
Faf and Rajat made a century partnership which was broken in 13 overs. Rajat Patidar was then dismissed by Suchit and the player contributed 48 runs off 38 balls. Then Glenn Maxwell came to bat and he walked shoulder to shoulder with Duplessis. The manner in which these two batsmen started collecting runs, after that it seemed that the score would go up to 180 but despite the best efforts of Glenn Maxwell, they were not hitting the ruthless for which they are known.
Original entry of Dinesh Karthik
Although Glenn Maxwell hit the switch during this time, hitting a six in the style of a left-handed batsman, seeing that everyone pressed his fingers under his teeth, but he could not do any other special feat in his batting and scored 33 runs in 24 balls. Karthik got out on Tyagi’s delivery. The real entry here was Dinesh Karthik, who turned the equation of the entire match upside down. Karthik was running flops in the last few matches, so there were apprehensions this time too but he had indicated to return to form in his last match by playing an unbeaten 26 off 17 balls.
The fate and picture of the game both started to turn.
Dinesh Karthik did not score runs in the first 2 balls after coming, it seemed that Dinesh Karthik is not yet in the starting mood of his IPL 2022 but from here both the fate and picture of the game started to change. Dinesh Karthik hit his first six in the final over of Fazalhaq Farooqui which went straight to deep midwicket. Tripathi tried to catch the catch during this but it turned into a six. The next ball was also hit with a raipat-like square. This time, Karthik went into the deep in the crease and hit this six over the head of Abhishek Sharma. RCB crossed the score of 180 on the basis of the second consecutive six.
Disappointed in only three innings
Dinesh Karthik completed his hat-trick with another six off Farooqui’s next ball as he sent the ball very well to deep midwicket. It was the last ball of the 20th over when Dinesh Karthik hit a boundary and thus 25 runs were scored in this last over. With this, Virat Kohli also appeared to make noise for Dinesh Karthik and RCB’s team had scored 192 runs. Dinesh Karthik has been in golden form and has disappointed in only three innings this IPL, in all the rest he roars like a lion.
Dinesh Karthik is very heavy on all the batsmen of IPL
The truth is that Dinesh Karthik has been dismissed only 4 times so far and his strike rate has been terrible. Dinesh Karthik is very heavy on all the batsmen of IPL and no one else can beat him even around him.
Karthik has scored 274 runs in 12 matches at a strike rate of 200 with an average of 68.50. Batsmen with strike rates around him have either batted with a low average or have a very small sample size. Livingstone is somewhat close to Karthik, who has scored 315 runs in 11 matches with a strike rate of 184.21 but averages only 31.50. Andre Russell also managed to get a strike rate of 183.78 but his average is 38.86 with 272 runs. Simran Hit Maier, who averages above Dinesh Karthik, has scored 291 runs in 11 matches but has a strike rate of 166.29.
This shows that Karthik fully deserves to be a part of India‘s T20 World Cup squad. It remains to be seen whether the echo of Karthik’s bat will be able to go inside the ears of the selectors and change the thinking of their mind or not.
