Speaking on Star Sports, Singh said: “Dinesh Karthik has been outstanding for RCB. He’s very good at leg shots than his off-sides, excellent at taking singles, but I think overall he understands his game very well. Whenever he gets the last chances, he makes sure to finish the game. To me, if anyone has played the best part of a finisher in this entire IPL, it’s none other than Dinesh Kartik. If I had been a selector I would have given him a ticket to Australia for World Cup T20 and let him play for India as wicketkeeper and batsman because he deserves it.”

“And if the Indian cricket team ever needs the best finisher, it has to be Dinesh Karthik and Hardik Pandya as they form a very powerful side. Anyway, I’ve gone deep into the future, but then again, I have to say that Dinesh Karthik has been incredible this season and I hope he gets a chance to hit a little early. 15 to 16 overs are enough to finish the game”, he added.

When asked about Dinesh Karthik’s impact on RCB this season, coach Sanjay Bangar said how well he is doing for RCB and how he is also helping the younger players get the best out of them.

Sanjay Bangar also said on Star Sports “Dinesh Karthik has been quite good for us, we chose him for a certain role because we knew that after AB de Villiers left that would be a big gap to fill. With his balance and skills he actually has the best of our younger batsmen batting with him in the middle order so even sometimes he has hit with Mahipal Lomror or sometimes with Shahbaz or with a few other batsmen and he has used all his experience, not only to take that experience into his game, but also how he has allowed the young batsmen to play around him is indeed an honor for his contribution to the team. †

Karthik was in excellent form for RCB during this IPL season. He has played many games for his side, formed many valuable partnerships with middle-class batters and accelerated the scoring of runs at the end. In 12 innings, he scored 274 runs at an average of 68.50 and went unbeaten 8 times. His individual best score this season is 66*. He has scored half a century for his side this season.

Royal Challengers Bangalore will face Punjab Kings on Friday.
