“Our Dinesh Karthik Is Back In Blues”- Twitter Reacts As RCB Wicket-Keeper Makes Comeback To Indian Squad For South Africa Series

The Indian selectors announced the squad for the upcoming 5-match T20I series against the South African cricket team. Many big names returned to the T20I squad, while some uncapped stars received their maiden call-up to the national team. One of the biggest news stories emerging out of it was the return of Dinesh Karthik to the Indian cricket team.

Karthik was dropped from the ODI and T20I squads after the 2019 Cricket World Cup. While his form in ODIs was not the best, his T20I numbers were good, and fans always questioned why he was left out of the squad. Karthik worked hard and scored heaps of runs for Tamil Nadu and Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Most importantly, Karthik proved himself as a finisher who can change the game in a matter of a few deliveries. He has scored runs consistently for the Royal Challengers Bangalore after coming in a difficult situation, and that too against some of the best bowling attacks in T20 cricket.


Here is the full Indian squad for the upcoming T20I series against the South African cricket team:

T20I Squad – KL Rahul (Capt), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, Deepak Hooda, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant(VC) (wk), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Hardik Pandya, Venkatesh Iyer, Y Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, R Bishnoi, Bhuvneshwar, Harshal Patel, Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh, Umran Malik.
