Former Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh said that Royal Challengers Bangalore wicketkeeper batter Dinesh Karthik is one of the finest finishers in the recent Indian Premier League season and that if he was a selector, he would pick him for the upcoming T20 World Cup in Australia.

While speaking on Star Sports, Singh said, “Dinesh Karthik has been outstanding for RCB. He is very good at leg side shots than his off sides, excellent at taking singles but I think, overall he understands his game very well. Whenever he is left with last chances, he makes sure that he finishes the game.

“And if ever Indian Cricket team needs the best finisher then it should be Dinesh Karthik. And Hardik Pandya as they make a very powerful side. Anyway, I have gone deep into the future but yeah once again, I must say Dinesh Karthik has been incredible this season and I hope he gets a chance to bat a little early. 15 to 16 overs are enough for him to finish the game,” he added.

When questioned about Dinesh Karthik’s impact on RCB this season, coach Sanjay Bangar emphasised how well he is performing for the team. While also assisting the younger players in getting the most out of them.

“Dinesh Karthik has been pretty good for us, we chose him for a particular role. Because we knew that since after AB de Villiers left that is gonna be a big hole to fill. With his balance and skill set, he has actually got the best out of our younger batsmen who bat at the middle order with him. So even at times he has batted with Mahipal Lomror or at times with Shahbaz or with couple other batsmen. And he is used all his experience not only taking that experience into his game. But also how he has got the young batsmen to play around him is indeed a credit to his contribution to the team.”

RCB’s Karthik has been in excellent form this IPL season. He’s helped his team win numerous games by creating key connections with middle-order batters. And increasing run production at the conclusion. He has scored 274 runs at an average of 68.50 in 12 innings and has gone undefeated eight times. This season, his personal best score is 66*. He has a half-century for his team.
