ICC T20 World Cup 2022: Team India have plenty of players in respective departments. As a result, the team management has been testing the bench strength time and again.

We have seen India fielding new players for some tours. It is important to give opportunities to the deserving talents, which is the only way to take Indian cricket forward.

Earlier, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced the squad for the Asia Cup. There were surprise exclusions from the squad as the selectors dropped Ishan Kishan, Sanju Samson and Mohammed Shami from the plans.

On the other hand, the likes of Harshal Patel and Jasprit Bumrah are nursing an injury. The new faces selected for the Asia Cup are Deepak Hooda, Avesh Khan and Arshdeep Singh.

Meanwhile, experienced wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik has been selected for the Asia Cup tournament. The Nidahas Trophy final hero has been playing the role of a finisher.

Notably, he has also succeeded in piling up runs for the team at the rate of knots whenever it mattered the most. His presence will surely play a big role going forward into the Asia Cup.

ICC T20 World Cup 2022: Aakash Chopra talks about Dinesh Karthik’s case for T20 WC

Former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra reckons he is not fully certain whether Dinesh Karthik will be part of the playing XI of the T20 World Cup.

The upcoming edition of the T20 WC will be held in Australia later this year in October-November. The forthcoming Asia Cup will serve as an ideal setup for the players heading into the T20 WC 2022.

Aakash Chopra, while speaking on his YouTube channel discussed Team India’s middle-order batsmen. On the same note, he went on to talk about Dinesh Karthik’s case for the World Cup.

“Dinesh Karthik is an interesting one, neither does he wish to bat up the order nor does anyone get him to do that. Everyone has decided that he is a finisher.

You feel he is doing good, but a specialist finisher at No. 6 or No. 7, questions will be asked. He can be a part of the team but coming in the XI, I am not 100% certain,” he added.

“DK has played 15 matches since the last World Cup, scored 192 runs at an average of 21 but has a strike rate of 133. He has not done badly, it is extremely difficult to be extraordinary at that number. Karthik had a good IPL – scored 330 runs at a strike rate of 183 and an average of 55 in 16 matches,” Chopra said.
