“Dinesh Karthik Ahead Of Ishan Kishan, Rishabh Pant in terms of consistency”: Kapil Dev Lavishes Huge Praise On Indian Finisher 

Dinesh Karthik's show of consistency in the recent season of IPL 2022 has led him back into the Indian Team squad.

Dinesh Karthik has gotten his consistency back in form since he brilliantly performed for RCB in the 15th season of IPL. As he put his experience and finished matches for his IPL team, Karthik attracted the interests of the Indian Team’s selectors and is back in the Indian squad. He is currently performing for the country in the 4-match T20 series against South Africa. It is no news that Dinesh Karthik’s form has impressed many professionals of cricket. Moreover, the Haryana Hurricane, Kapil Dev lavishes huge praise on the Indian finisher. 

Kapil Dev Lavishes Huge Praise On Indian Finisher:

As a matter of fact, the former Indian skipper, feels that when it comes to consistency, Karthik is way ahead of Ishan Kishan as well as Rishabh Pant. “If we talk about consistency currently, Dinesh Karthik is ahead of all. Ishan Kishan had, I think, come under pressure. Maybe it’s the pressure of the high price that he garnered at the IPL auction. I never got so much money, so I will not be able to say. I don’t think Dinesh Karthik has surpassed Rishabh Pant in T20s. But this time, he has done so well that he forced selectors to not ignore him.” 

Kapil Dev also mentioned that Rishabh Pant, being a young cricketer, will get plenty opportunities to prove himself. “Pant is a youngster who has lot of cricket left, then there is Karthik who has loads of experience. The more said about Karthik, the less. He started before (MS) Dhoni and is still continuing.”

The former Indian cricketer also shared his views on Sanju Samson and said his consistency is the main reason of him not being able to make a place for himself in the national team. “I’m disappointed with Sanju Samson. He’s so talented. He does well in one or two matches and then he doesn’t do anything.” 

He was also asked about comparing the four wicket-keeper batsmen i.e., Dinesh Karthik, Rishabh Pant, Ishan Kishan and Sanju Samson. Kapil Dev replied by saying, “If you talk about wicket-keepers, they’re all almost the same. But if you talk about being the better batter, on a given day all four can win you matches. If you talk about Wriddhiman Saha, he is a better wicket-keeper than these four. But these four, as a batsman, they are better.”
