Kevin Pietersen in awe of Dinesh Karthik’s heroics against SRH

Kevin Pietersen had a cheeky take on Dinesh Karthik during the match between SRH and RCB. The match witnessed history as it recorded the most runs scored in a T20 match, the most runs in the IPL history, the most runs while batting second in the IPL history, the fourth fastest hundred in the IPL history, and many

Karthik was brilliant in the night and played a key role in RCB staying alive in the game. The star player scored 83 runs in 35 balls, including five fours and seven sixes. He hit some massive sixes. The biggest of them was 106 meters, which is now the biggest six in the ongoing season. The keeper-batter unleashed his beast form.

Seeing the way Karthik batted, Pietersen could not just help but rave about the experience of the right-handed batter. The former English batter spoke highly of Karthik and claimed that he had never seen a commentator bat the way the 38-year-old did. “Never seen a commentator bat so well,” claimed Kevin in the commentary box.

Can Dinesh Karthik make it to the T20 WC squad?

Despite the brilliant efforts from Dinesh, RCB lost the match by 25 runs. But the crowd did not mind the loss as the middle-order batter put on a great show. He has been doing it for a while now. In the ongoing season, the star batter has been incredible for RCB, batting well in almost all his innings.

Karthik has played seven matches so far in the IPL 2024. In six innings, the batter has scored 226 runs at a great batting average of 75.33 at an insane batting strike rate of 205.4,5 including a couple of fifty-plus scores. In the last two innings, Karthik has two fifties to his name against teams like Mumbai Indians and SRH.

Given the fact that the T20 World Cup 2024 is just six months away from starting, Karthik has made a good case for himself to get selected in the squad. Among the wicketkeeper-batters in the ongoing season, he has the best experience and striking abilities.
