Former Indian fast bowler Irfan Pathan was all praise for Dinesh Karthik. Pathan asserted that Karthik can smash bowlers to all parts of the ground as he has all the shots. 

“You won’t find a player with such a range. See, I’m not comparing him with AB de Villiers in terms of ability, but his range is quite similar to him. He will hit you for sweep, he will go for a switch hit. He has all the shots. When needed, he charges down the track and yes, he does prefer the leg-side. But the way he uses his feet and gets in the line of the ball is brilliant,” Irfan Pathan said on Star Sports.

The way Dinesh Karthik is batting, fans and former cricketers are of the opinion that he will be on the flight to Australia for the T20 world cup which is scheduled to take place in Australia later this year.
