Gavaskar has appointed senior cricketer Dinesh Karthik to return to the Indian side even before the T20 World Cup. The Mumbaikar reckoned that Karthik should return in the home series against South Africa and the tour to England.

“The way the IPL is going for him at the moment I think he should be very much in contention for India’s place in the October tournament, maybe even earlier for South Africa, for England I think he should be earlier. in the team,” Gavaskar said quoted by SportsToday.

Gavaskar said he would consider Karthik for the No. 6 or 7 slots. In particular, Karthik is in the form of his life in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022playing the role of finisher quite successfully for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). He is RCB’s second highest run scorer this season, with 274 runs in 12 games. What is striking, however, is his scoring rate, which is 200.

“I would definitely see him as a hitter who can get in at No. 6 or not. 7 like he is doing at RCB and take the game away from the rival”, Gavaskar added.
