During a chat with the reporters, Sanjay Bangar said, “During the course of the innings, Dinesh Karthik started feeling unwell, he was a bit dehydrated and on his way back he also vomited. There is enough gap for us, maybe three-four days, so with medicine, I think he should be fine. He is an important member for us and he has a big role to play.”

Karthik didn’t keep wickets for RCB in MI’s innings as youngster Anuj Rawat was seen donning the wicketkeeping gloves during the entire contest at the Wankhede Stadium. Karthik smashed an 18-ball 30 for RCB against MI and his entertaining knock guided Bangalore to 199-6 in 20 overs.

While senior batters Karthik, Du Plessis (65), and Glenn Maxwell (68) played crucial knocks for the visitors, youngsters Rawat (6) and Mahipal Lomror (1) failed to fire in the high-scoring encounter.

Explaining the same, Sanjay Bangar said, “Our young Indian batters are not progressing at a very good rate. Lomror has been someone who has taken his chances well. But somebody like Anuj Rawat or Shahbaz Ahmed, whenever they have got those opportunities, unfortunately, they have not been able to capitalize on it. You have to be patient with younger players and you can perhaps try to relate it to the example of Rinku Singh.”
