If selectors see these figures of Dinesh Karthik, he will not be selected in T20 World Cup even by mistake.


Of course, the performance of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in IPL 2024 has been disappointing, but this team's wicketkeeper batsman Dinesh Karthik has remained the topic of discussion in the current season. DK has attracted everyone's attention with his explosive performance this season. So far, he has scored 251 runs in 7 innings of 8 matches with an explosive strike rate of 196.09.

Not only this, this 38-year-old cricketer is impressing everyone with his 360-degree batting and power-hitting ability. Seeing this excellent form of Karthik, once again the discussion has started about taking him to the upcoming T20 World Cup, but one truth is that till now Karthik has proved to be a super flop in the T20 World Cup. And if the selectors leave IPL and look at his T20 World Cup figures, then DK will never be selected.

If we look at DK's World Cup statistics, he has played 3 World Cups so far from 2007 to 2022 T20 World Cup. During this period, he has scored only 71 runs in 10 matches at a shameful average of 8.87. Out of these 10, Karthik scored only 28 runs at an average of 9.33 while playing 4 matches in the 2007 T20 World Cup, whereas in the 2010 T20 World Cup, he got a chance to play only 2 matches in which he scored 29 runs at an average of 14.50. Scored runs and even before the T20 World Cup played in the year 2022, DK had created a lot of havoc in the IPL.

Seeing his IPL performance, he was selected in the T20 World Cup 2022 but he once again disappointed in the main event. DK played 4 matches in the 2022 T20 World Cup in which he was able to score only 14 runs at a poor average of 4.66. In such a situation, now after looking at these figures, you yourself tell whether DK should get the T20 World Cup ticket on the basis of his IPL performance. The answer for most of you would be no because if DK had not been able to prove himself in the previous three T20 World Cups, then the selectors would not make the mistake of giving him a chance for the fourth time.
