The veteran Indian wicket-keeper batter, Dinesh Karthik was amazed by England’s recent dominating performance against Pakistan in the recently concluded three-match Test series. Ever since Ben Stokes and Brendon McCullum have taken over the responsibility to revamp England, they have won nine out of their last ten Test matches under the new leadership, and with the series win over Pakistan, they are now dominating away from home as well.
Considering England’s recent form and Australia’s quality, 37-year-old Dinesh Karthik is very excited for the rivalry and is waiting for the summer to begin as he is set to return to the commentary box for Ashes 2023. Interestingly, he made his commentary debut for Sky Sports in 2021 before making a return to international cricket.
In his recent tweet, Dinesh Karthik wrote:“What an amazing series win by England! Cannot wait for the Ashes to begin this summer & be a part of @SkySports. It’s gonna be one hell of a ride! Well done @Bazmccullum @benstokes38!”

Next year’s Ashes is going to be one of the most important chapters of the career of the English Test skipper, Ben Stokes. The 31-year-old is not someone who plans ahead of his time but he recently revealed that the all-rounder is keeping an eye on Ashes 2023.
After white-washing Pakistan in the three-match series in their home turf, Ben Stokes said, “I obviously have my eye on the Ashes and have got little things about that in the back of my head. We will just continue to grow as team, spend more time here as a unit, and keep enjoying having fun, playing cricket with a smile on our face and win as much as we can.”
