The great Kapil Dev has heaped praise on one of the most important parts of the Indian squad, believing that the player’s recent form has pushed the selectors to consider him seriously. There are plenty of positions up for grabs in the batting, fast bowling, wicket-keeping, and spin bowling departments in the run-up to the T20 World Cup in October, and with such a large pool of players to choose from, the BCCI selection committee should ideally be giving everyone a chance in the 30-odd India T20 matches that will take place between now and the World Cup.

Dinesh Karthik, an Indian veteran, seems to have made a good case for himself within the current group, according to Kapil. Karthik produced a blazing 30 not out off 21 balls after being rewarded with an India call-back following a stellar IPL 2022 for Royal Challengers Bangalore, where he scored 330 runs at an average of 55. Karthik is difficult to miss right now, which is why Kapil feels that no amount of praise is adequate for the 37-year-old.

“He has done so well this time that the selectors have been forced to realise, ‘hey, you can’t overlook me.’ Rishabh Pant is a young cricketer with a lot of experience. Dinesh Karthik has the experience and has delivered, which is why I believe no amount of praise is sufficient for him “Uncut spoke with Kapil.
