One unnamed Indian selectore recently spoke to Insidesport and said "Who can stop Dinesh Karthik now? He is certainty now for T20 World Cup in Australia. He is consistent in his approach and most importantly consistently delivering via his approach. His experience will now be a big asset. No formal talk has happened on the subject. Informally when we speak, all are very impressed with him and his attitude"
Dinesh Karthik comes back into from -
During the series against South Africa, the 4th T20 saw Dinesh Karthik score his 1st ever T20 half century for India. DK scored a 27 ball 55 and during the 1st T20 against West Indies he scored 19 ball 41 to help India reach 190 on the board. India went on to win the game by 68 runs.
