Dinesh Karthik desires for the star batter to be India’s Virat Kohli and complete games.


Dinesh Karthik, an Indian wicketkeeper-batsman, added that Rohit Sharma has acquired enormous respect as a leader for playing through injuries. Bangladesh defeated Team India, which was led by Virat Kohli, by 5 runs in the second ODI on Wednesday.

However, Bangladesh crushed the dreams of the visitors by winning the nail-biting final over on Wednesday at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, despite Rohit Sharma and Shreyas Iyer’s gallant batting. In spite of a misfortunate thumb injury, seasoned Indian captain Rohit Sharma delivered a fantastic knock against Bangladesh. Senior gloveman Dinesh Karthik, who praised the Indian captain, asserted that Rohit has acquired enormous respect as a leader for playing through an injury.

The veteran Indian batsman also discussed Iyer’s brilliant performance against the Litton Das-led team in the second ODI in Dhaka. Iyer’s lone warrior effort kept the visitors in the hunt at Dhaka before Rohit batted at the number nine position and saved India from a grave scenario. In the recently finished match, the star batsman hit a game-changing half-century for the Virat Kohli-starrer team. Iyer scored the most runs for India in the series finale with 82 off 97 balls.

Iyer, who was playing well, passed Shikhar Dhawan in 2022 to become Team India’s top ODI run scorer. The white-ball maverick has scored more than 720 runs for India in 16 games this year. “You want to be the man who returns the country to its people, not one of the chasers. He would actually miss that right now. Only after you cross the finish line, which involves being a middle-order batter and winning such games, does scoring 82 look and feel good. You begin to feel that teams fear you when you perform regularly, Karthik said.
