India’s senior cricketer Dinesh Karthik might not be a part of the squad in the ODI World Cup 2023 but made his World Cup debut by donning the commentary hat. The wicketkeeper-batsman who is known for his in-depth and insightful analysis of the gentleman’s game was recently asked a tricky question by a fan.
Dinesh Karthik who has played alongside both Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma was asked which among the two India’s batting greats did he like watching the most bat. Yes, it was indeed the most difficult and trickiest question in the first place but the senior cricketer gave a smart answer in the best way possible.
Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma immensely contributed to the Indian cricket team across all three formats of the game. While Kohli is currently the best all-format batsman in the world, Rohit Sharma is the best opening batsman across formats. Both batters dominated white-ball cricket for more than a decade.
