Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) wicket-keeper batter, Dinesh Karthik has been in phenomenal form in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 as a finisher. He did the same against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday. Karthik played an unbeaten knock of eight-ball 30, with four sixes and one four, to take RCB to a commanding score of 192/3 while batting first.

RCB managed to register a daunting score of 192/3 at the end of the innings against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in Match 54 of the IPL 2022 at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Faf du Plessis, who won the toss and decided to bat, anchored the innings, scoring 50-ball 73.

However, it was Dinesh Karthik, who took them past 190. Karthik, who came out to bat at No. 5, smashed four sixes and one four in his eight-ball stay, and all of them came in the last four balls. Following the onslaught against Fazalhaq Farooqi, Karthik remained unbeaten on 30 off eight balls.

It was a decent performance from someone, who is constantly performing in IPL 2022 to get a chance in the Indian team for their next T20 World Cup, scheduled to take place in Australia later this year. Rajat Patidar and Glenn Maxwell chipped in with handy contributions as well, scoring 38-ball 48 and 24-ball 33 respectively, while Virat Kohli was dismissed on a golden duck.
