Dinesh Karthik’s comeback to cricket
Due to his divorce from first wife Nikita, Dinesh was not playing and giving his best in the matches. But after his second marriage, he is happy again and made a marvelous comeback.
Dinesh Karthik made his T20I debut in India’s 1st match against South Africa in Johannesburg in December 2006. Karthik scored an undefeated record of 31 in that match and was named Player of the Match.
On Friday (17 June 2022), Karthik notched his first half-century in the format, a blistering 27-ball 55 runs, hitting nine fours and two sixes at a strike rate of 203.7 in Rajkot. He was also involved in a crucial 65-run stand-off with Hardik Pandya with 33 balls to set up India’s 82-run thrashing of South Africa and set up a thrilling series finale on Sunday.
Therefore, Karthik broke MS Dhoni’s record for the oldest Indian cricketer to score a fifty in international cricket. Former India captain Dhoni holds the world record until Friday when he scored his second T20I fifty against South Africa at the age of 36.
