Dinesh Karthik Biography

Karthik was born on June 1, 1985, in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, to a Telugu family.

After a two-year stay in Kuwait, he began playing cricket at the age of ten (where his father worked).

His father, a former first-class cricketer from Chennai, coached him in cricket. Karthik’s father was disappointed that his career was hampered when he was compelled by his family to prioritise his schooling above his job.

He did not want his son to suffer the same fate and began training him at a young age.

Karthik developed his reflexes by having his father hurl hard leather balls at him at high speeds when he was a child. Robin Singh thought he was exceptionally fit because he was once a batsman who learnt wicket-keeping on the Tamil Nadu juvenile teams.

Karthik steadily rose through the ranks of the youngsters.

In early 1999, he made his Tamil Nadu under-14 debut, and at the start of the 2000/2001 season, he was promoted to the under-19 side. The next season, he made his senior team’s first-class debut.

Karthik made his first-class debut as a wicket-keeper against Baroda in late 2002. He batted in five round-robin matches, scoring 179 runs at 35.80, with a best score of 88 not out against Uttar Pradesh in his second match.

In the off-season, Karthik attended a wicket-keeping workshop led by former Indian wicketkeeper and chairman of selectors Kiran More, which he credits with strengthening his technique.

Karthik was named to India’s Under-19 Cricket World Cup squad in Bangladesh in 2004, and he made two half-centuries during an India A tour to Zimbabwe.

He captained Tamil Nadu in six Ranji Trophy matches in 2009–2010. Karthik scored 152 against Orissa and 117 against Punjab, with two more scores of 70 or more. In his other four innings, he only managed to score 16 runs, finishing the season with 443 runs and a 55.37 batting average.

In October 2018, Karthik was selected captain of the India A squad for the 2018–19 Deodhar Trophy. In October of this year, he was picked to the India C team for the upcoming edition.

Indian Premier League

Karthik was a wicket-keeper for the Delhi Daredevils in the 2008 Indian Premier League, hitting 145 runs at 24.16 and a strike rate of 135.51.

Kings XI Punjab paid $900,000 for him in 2011, making him the club’s second-most expensive player. Karthik joined Mumbai Indians for a reputed $2.35 million in the 2012 Indian Premier League.

Halfway through the 2020 season, Karthik handed over the leadership to Eoin Morgan.

In IPL 2021, he only managed to score 223 runs while also dismissing seven batters.

Karthik was purchased by the Royal Challengers Bangalore for 5.50 crores in the 2022 IPL Auction.

International career

In October 2004, Karthik made his Test cricket debut in Mumbai, replacing Parthiv Patel in the fourth Test match between Australia and India (who was dropped for poor wicket-keeping).

Karthik has been retained for India’s next tour, a two-Test series against South Africa at home.

Dhoni hit 148 in an ODI against Pakistan, and he took over for Karthik in the three Tests against Sri Lanka at home.

During the mid-2007 Test series in England, Karthik was a regular opener. He made a half-century in each of the three Tests after reaching 76 and 51 in the two tour matches before to the Tests.

While Gambhir was out with an injury, Karthik was retained as the opener for the Test tour of Australia.

In the 2009 one-day competition, he made an unbeaten 117 against Kerala and was named as the reserve wicket-keeper for the New Zealand tour.

In the Duleep Trophy final versus West Zone, he scored 183 and 150, becoming only the third player to reach century in both innings of a Duleep Trophy final.
