Wasim Jaffer tweeted, “The commentator DK can walk the talk,” he also added, “Well played”. His post was accompanied with a picture to indicate that Dinesh Karthik is “not finished”.

There have been concerns over the batting form of Dinesh Karthik before the IPL 2022 as he witnessed a rough patch in the last couple of seasons. However, he has come back with a bang this year, putting to rest any questions about his abilities.

In RCB’s first match, against Punjab Kings (PBKS), Dinesh Karthik played a fiery knock of 32 off just 14 deliveries to help the team post a total of 205/2, although the Mayank Agarwal-led side was able to pull off a massive chase.
