3 players may be ruled out of T20 World Cup because of Dinesh Karthik

At the age of 37, Dinesh Karthik reached his peak in his cricketing career with a stellar performance in IPL 2022 for RCB over the past few months and then made a successful return to the Indian team three years later.

Dinesh Karthik made a great comeback

So destructive and reliable Dinesh Karthik has been in the niche of a finisher, that the right-handed batsman has cemented his place in India’s squad for the T20 World Cup in less than three months in Australia, or perhaps India. Even in eleven.

Karthik’s destructive skills in the death overs mean he will be placed at number 6 or 7 along with Ravindra Jadeja, depending on the situation in the match. Karthik is now unstoppable from the Indian side, however, this has created a puzzle as India will now have to sell one or two of their big-name batsmen.

Here are three players who could be ruled out of the T20 World Cup squad because of Dinesh Karthik:

Ishaan Kishan

Ishan Kishan has apparently been booked in the T20 squad as a backup opener for Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul and as a backup keeper for Pant – but until recently. Now, however, the left-hander is out of contention with India opening in England and the West Indies with the likes of Rishabh Pant and even Suryakumar Yadav, and Kishan has been sent to the bench.

The Mumbai Indians opener has scored 27, 15, 26, 3, 16 and 8 in his last 6 innings for India. And with Dinesh Karthik, India doesn’t need his keeping skills right now. And even though India need a backup opener for the T20 World Cup, they have options in Pant, Sky and even Virat Kohli.

Sanju Samson

Sanju Samson is now away from India’s T20 World Cup squad, say, ahead of IPL 2022 when he was called back for the Sri Lanka series. Even though he has performed decently in occasions during the IPL in recent months and also hit 77 vs Ireland, Samson was dropped from the T20 squad for England and West Indies, but after KL Rahul faces West Indies But it was added. ruled out.

Samson is not seen as a starting option for India – which is already jam-packed – but as a middle-order pinch-hitter. But with everyone back for the Asia Cup and Karthik cementing his place as a finisher, Samson is likely to be dropped from the 15-man Asia Cup squad and the T20 World Cup squad as well.

Shreyas Iyer

Shreyas Iyer was among the standby/reserve players for the 2021 T20 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates last year. It is highly likely that he will once again be the reserve player in India’s squad for this year’s T20 World Cup and will be dropped from the 15-man squad once again. Shreyas’ weakness against short balls, especially targeting his body, is now well known by every coach and opposition team and will be exploited on Australian pitches.

Dinesh Karthik

With both Suryakumar Yadav and Dinesh Karthik in India’s first-choice eleven and perhaps Kishan or Deepak Hooda also in the fray, Shreyas is unlikely to make it to the last 15.
