Dinesh Karthik vs Delhi Capitals: Royal Challengers Bangalore wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik played a stormy innings against Delhi Capitals in the 27th match of IPL 2022. Karthik played an unbeaten innings of 66 runs in 34 balls with the help of 5 fours and as many sixes. During this his strikerate was 194.12. During this wonderful innings, this RCB batsman took a jibe at all the bowlers of Delhi but he broke down as havoc on Mustafizur Rahman. During this, he reminded him of the Nidahar Trophy played in 2018.
Karthik scored 28 runs in Mustafizur Rahman’s over.
Mustafizur Rahman, who brought the 18th over of the innings, was welcomed by Karthik with a four. He then hit three fours and two high-rise sixes. Karthik scored a total of 28 runs from this over of Mustafizur. During this, he also completed half-century in 26 balls. At the cost of this smoky innings of Karthik, RCB set a target of 190 runs in front of Delhi.
Did amazing in Nidahas Trophy too
In the final of the Nidahas Trophy played in 2018, Dinesh Karthik won the team the title by playing a stormy innings of 29 runs in 8 balls. India needed 13 runs in the last and Karthik had won the title for India by hitting a six off Soumya Sarkar in the last ball.
Karthik’s catch was left for 5 runs
When Dinesh Karthik was batting against Delhi Capitals, skipper Rishabh Pant dropped the catch of this batsman in Kuldeep Yadav’s over. This mistake was very heavy on the team of Delhi, due to which they have to chase such a big score. Had Karthik fallen into Kuldeep’s trap at that time, RCB would hardly have reached this score.
Karthik shared 97 runs for the 6th wicket with Shahbaz.
RCB got the fifth blow on the score of 92. During that time, Shahbaz, who came to support Karthik, played an unbeaten innings of 32 runs in 21 balls. The partnership of 97 runs for the 6th wicket between the two players was the third highest partnership for this wicket in the history of IPL. The highest partnership for the 6th wicket was made by Rayudu and Pollard against RCB in 2021, during which both scored 122 runs. At the same time, David Hussey and Wriddhiman Saha are second in this list with 104 runs.
