Rahul Dravid Dinesh Karthik Team India: India’s head coach Rahul Dravid feels Dinesh Karthik has provided many options ahead of the T20 World Cup in Australia later this year with his aggressive last-over batting. Dravid also wants to determine the main team for the World Cup by the end of the series against England and made it clear that one has to perform exceptionally to make it to the last 15 players.
After the five-match series against South Africa ended 2-2, Dravid said, “It was really good to see that Karthik played the role he was picked for. This gives us a lot of options.”
The last match of the series was washed out due to rain. Regarding Karthik’s innings of 55 runs off 27 balls in the fourth T20 match, Dravid said, “He was selected for his exceptional performance in the last two or three years (in the IPL) and in the series, especially in Rajkot, he did such an innings.” played.”
According to Dravid, Karthik and Hardik Pandya are two such batsmen who can change the equation of the match in the death overs. He said, “We needed such big performances in the last five overs to score a good score and he and Hardik batted very well. Both are our main strengths in the last overs.
Dravid does not want to set any time limit, but by the end of the T20 series against England, he wants to prepare an unbiased opinion about 18 to 20 players before the World Cup in Australia. India and England will play six limited overs matches from July 7 to 17 after the one-off Test. Dravid said, “As you get closer to the competition, you want to be sure about your final team. There are possibilities of sudden changes in the kind of world you live in today. You will go to the World Cup with 15 players but it is important to identify 18 to 20 top players.
Dravid said, “There may be changes due to injury and other reasons which are beyond your control but we want to ensure that team as soon as possible. Whether it will be in the next series (Ireland) or the series after (England) it is difficult to say, but we definitely want to do that as soon as possible.
