Have been around for many years but this was the first time I led the team in blue. Even though it was a warm-up game, it felt special and a great honour. Big thanks to all who have always supported and for the wishes. Proud of being a part of this team”

Meanwhile, this isn’t the first time that Karthik has led a team as a captain. Dinesh Karthik is an experienced captain as he has previously led his state team, Tamil Nadu, and was also the captain of IPL franchise Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) for more than 2 years. Under his leadership, KKR qualified for the 2nd round of IPL 2018.

Talking about his captaincy stint for the Indian side, Karthik made a winning start to his captaincy career as the Indian side was able to chase down a total of 151 runs against Derbyshire. Sanju Samson played a knock of 38 runs and Deepak Hooda scored 59 off 37.

The finishing job was done by Suryakumar Yadav, who remained unbeaten on 36 off 22, along with captain Dinesh Karthik, who also remained unbeaten and scored 7 off 7 balls.

The Men in Blue will be next seen locking its horns against Northamptonshire in a warm-up match. DK will once again lead the Indian cricket team.
