Will Dinesh Karthik play in the T20 World Cup 2024?

It is anticipated that the squad will be announced within the next week by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCC). A World Cup match for India has been mentioned by Dinesh Karthik. 

I would feel the most privileged to represent India at this point in my life. I can’t wait to do it at all. Being an Indian representative in this T20 World Cup is the greatest thing I have ever done,” Karthik said.

Despite ranking sixth, DK is among the Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) team’s top scorers. While captain Faf Du Plessis scored 232 runs over seven innings, he scored 226 runs in only six innings. Virat Kohli, the wearer of the Orange Cap, has a lower average (72.20) than Dinesh (75.33).

Dinesh Karthik fires T20 World Cup

Veteran batsman-wicket keeper Dinesh Karthik has entered the battle to rejoin the national side for the ICC tournament, with little over a week to go until BCCI head selector Ajit Agarkar reveals the 15-member roster for the T20 World Cup. 

Days before Karthik’s remark, India skipper Rohit Sharma had quietly hinted that the veteran cricketer is vying to be included in the World Cup team.

This IPL season, Karthik has made yet another incredible comeback. With incredible power to strike at a pace well above 200, he has elevated his batting to a whole new level in 2024. Karthik’s entry into the T20 World Cup has intensified the competition for the wicketkeeping position.

Karthik, who bats in the bottom middle order for RCB, who have had a terrible season so far, has amassed 226 runs in seven games, making him the team’s third-highest run scorer after captain Faf du Plessis (232) and Virat Kohli (361).

Dinesh Karthik Keen to Play T20 World Cup

Dinesh Karthik, the RCB wicketkeeper-batsman, has said that he would want to compete in the 2024 T20 World Cup. Just before the international event, the seasoned cricketer has been in incredible form in the Indian Premier League. 

Karthik has been in outstanding form and has carried the RCB batting lineup in the lower order. Karthik struck 83 off 35 balls in RCB’s most recent game against SRH, providing the team a glimmer of hope as they attempted to chase down the enormous 288-run mark.

Since making his comeback to the competition, Pant has performed above and above expectations. In the last week of April, the Indian team for the T20 World Cup is anticipated to be revealed.

Examining Dinesh Karthik’s IPL record in World Cup years

Whenever a T20 World Cup or ODI World Cup is approaching later in the year, Karthik always appears to be stepping it up a notch or two. He began the pattern in 2017 with the now-defunct Gujarat Lions, scoring 361 runs in 13 innings at an average of 36.10 and striking out at about 140. 

Later that year, he was chosen to replace the injured Manish Pandey in the Indian team for the ICC Champions Trophy.  In a same vein, his stellar performances in 2019 and 2022 secured him entry to the ODI and T20 World Cups, respectively.  

Karthik was not selected for the World Cups of 2021 and 2023 because players like as Ishan Kishan, Rishabh Pant, and KL Rahul had passed him in the battle for selection. 

He seems to be solidifying his position as India’s first-choice wicketkeeper for the 2024 T20 World Cup with each game that goes by. He hit a brilliant 35-ball 83 on April 15, which included five fours and seven sixes, but RCB was 25 runs short of SRH’s 287-run innings record.

Is Dinesh Karthik a part of Rohit Sharma’s plans for the 2024 T20 World Cup?

Former MI captain Rohit Sharma, who will captain India in the 2024 T20 World Cup, spoke to Karthik during the overs break during the April 11 match between MI and RCB.

The fans were able to deduce what Rohit had said to Karthik thanks to the broadcast video of the game and the audio recorded by the stump mic. 

The stump mic caught Rohit saying to DK, “Shabaash DK, World Cup khelna hai abhi (brilliant DK, you have to play the World Cup)”.
