What a tournament Dinesh Karthik is having. He's in terrific form. Has reinvented himself

If Dinesh Karthik doesn't get the boarding pass in Australian flight even after such batting performances, don't know what else this guy has to do. Without a doubt the best finisher we can have in our T20 team.

DK lived in the shadows of MS Dhoni for the longest time.
Fitting that just when Dhoni's batting prowess is dwindling, Dinesh Karthik is slowly but surely coming into his own as the finisher ♥️
