Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting has heaped praise on Dinesh Karthik.
Ponting said he thought Karthik’s career was over
New Delhi. The Indian cricket team is considered to be the main contender to win the title in the ICC T20 World Cup. The game that Team India showed in the warm-up match against hosts Australia was a sign that the match had to be turned. Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting has praised a player of Team India. This is the player who proved everyone’s thinking wrong and made a place in the T20 World Cup team.
Talking to the ICC about Dinesh Karthik, Ponting said, “It seemed as if his career with the Indian team was over in all three formats. He was also not retained by KKR in the IPL. Today he is the best finisher in T20 cricket, which he might not have even thought about. I also felt that now his time to play is over and he is going to turn his attention towards commentary. But he changed everything on some other side. I am very satisfied and also very surprised at the way he has transformed his career in the last few months.”
He further said, “I feel like he is one of the best finishers in the world right now. It is not easy at all to do this with this age. Getting better is not that easy. One thing I know about Indian players is that they never give up easily. The way Dinesh has played, he has done it in such a way that it becomes difficult for him to select the team without him.
