Despite having accumulated a lot many runs in domestic cricket, Dinesh Karthik’s struggle to enter and remain in the Indian cricket team dressing room has been ever going. The emergence of MS Dhoni overshadowed Karthik, who was probably the more technically sound wicketkeeper during that period. However, the Test retirement of Dhoni in 2014 also couldn’t hand Karthik a comeback as Wriddhiman Saha was a better equipped stumper and a bankable option in the longest format of cricket. Karthik made his international debut on September 5, 2004, in an ODI match against England at Lord’s. Dhoni, on the other hand, got a chance on December 23, 2004, when he played his first ODI match for India during their tour to Bangladesh. Karthik debuted in Test cricket on November 5, 2004, in a match against Australia in Mumbai. A T20I breakthrough came for the Tamil Nadu batsman in December 2006 during India’s tour of South Africa. When everything seemed unsatisfactory in Karthik’s cricket career, he just did a Javed Miandad, scoring a last-ball six to guide India to Nidahas Trophy win in 2018.
