Choosing Dinesh Karthik over Rishabh Pant is the right decision – Harbhajan Singh



In Asia Cup, 2022 first match against Pakistan last Sunday, many fans were surprised to see Dinesh Karthik behind the stumps keeping the wickets ahead of Rishabh Pant. A hard-hitting left-handed batter and kipper Rishabh was an obvious choice for a high-voltage match but captain Rohit Sharma and team management had a different plan and Karthik was selected in playing eleven.

The inclusion of Karthik was criticized by most of the former players. Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh supported Rohit Sharma’s decision saying ” Indian team must make most of the Dinesh Karthik rich experience in the shortest format of the game.”

Karthik is in good form and had scored runs whenever he got the opportunity to bat since the last edition of IPL. He was one of the Indian ODI team from the 2019 World Cup but his stunning performances in IPL forced selectors to include him in the T20 squad.

37 years old Karthik from Tamilnadu is one of the players whose international T20 is spanning almost 12 years. He made his debut in 2006 against South Africa. He had scored runs at an average of 28.19 with a handy strike rate of 140 slightly better than Rishabh.

In the first match, Ravindra Jadeja was promoted to number 4  ahead of Karthik. When Dinesh came to bat India needed 15 odd runs to win also he got only one delivery to play so he must get the opportunity in upcoming matches thinks Bhajji. Rishab is still young and has substantial time left on the other hand Karthik has only 1-2 years of international cricket left and so should make the most of it, as batting down the order he can easily score some quick runs added Harbhajan Singh.
