Amidst these, a fan reminded the wicket-keeper batter of his forgettable knock against New Zealand during the World Cup semi-final which India lost. In the match, the veteran batter departed after scoring just 6 runs off 25 balls. Sharing the scorecard of Dinesh Karthik’s innings, a fan asked, “any word on your goated innings in the semi final?” To which he replied: “Delete this right now” with a facepalming emoji.

Answering another fan’s question, the 37-year-old batter picked Kuldeep Yadav as a good bowling option for the upcoming Border-Gavaskar trophy between India and Australia. “Definitely a good option in the future, but for the moment I’m excited about @imkuldeep18 . He is bowling brilliantly,” he wrote.

When asked which cricketer from the past he wished to share the dressing room with, Dinesh Karthik named legendary Windies stroke-maker Vivian Richards. Meanwhile, Karthik also told fans that he will soon be sharing his playing XI for the series on his Instagram account before the game starts on Friday in Nagpur.

Australia, the No. 1 ranked Test team, has dominated the ongoing World Test Championship (WTC) cycle and is in first place in the points table. They won the three-match series against Pakistan 1-0 and drew the two-match series in Sri Lanka 1-1. Meanwhile, India will play their final series, which they must win by a two-match margin to qualify for the WTC final for the second time.

When Dinesh Karthik was asked about the biggest threat for India in the upcoming Border Gavaskar Trophy during an interaction with the fans on social media in a #AskDK session, he responded. Tamil Nadu wicketkeeper batter took to Twitter and tweeted, “Nathan Lyon and Steve Smith #AskDK”
