T20 World Cup: The Indian cricket team is currently busy preparing for the T20 World Cup 2022. Team India had to be out in the same tournament last year after losing in the group stage, but this year the story could be different. Keeping in mind the T20 World Cup, former veteran batsman Sunil Gavaskar has given a big statement. Gavaskar has named a player who can do wonders for Team India in the World Cup this year.
Sunil Gavaskar claims
Former Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar is confident that batsman Dinesh Karthik can be included in the Indian team for this year’s ICC T20 World Cup. He has cemented his place in the team by performing brilliantly in IPL 2022 and T20 series against South Africa. Gavaskar and Karthik shared the commentary box during the World Test Championship final between India and New Zealand last year and the legendary cricketer revealed how hard Karthik worked to get back into the national team.
Gavaskar has full faith
Gavaskar told Star Sports, ‘When Dinesh Karthik went for the World Test Championship, we shared lunch, breakfast, dinner together. There Karthik told me about his ambition to return to the Indian team. Gavaskar reveals Karthik’s workout routine, which includes creating scenarios for the game in mind and practicing accordingly.
Kartik has prepared fiercely
Gavaskar said, ‘He was telling me how he was creating the conditions for the match in his mind and was emphasizing his preparations accordingly.’ Explaining further, the commentator said, ‘If you come to the crease to bat on 6 and 7, you do not get to play 20 overs.
“You only get to play 5-6 overs. You have to bat accordingly. For this, Karthik worked hard and the fruits of his hard work have come out in the IPL and T20 series. Despite facing limited deliveries in the recently concluded India-South Africa series, Karthik scored 92 runs in four innings at a strike rate of 158.62.
