MUMBAI (IANS) – Royal Challengers Bangalore’s (RCB) hottest cricketer so far this season, Dinesh Karthik, made his ambition to play for the country again known when he said that his aim is to do “something special for the country”.
Following a string of sterling performances from Karthik’s bat, the latest being an unbeaten 66 in a winnings cause against the Delhi Capitals at the Wankhede Stadium on April 16, Karthik has emerged as one of the top contenders for a spot in the India squad for the ICC T20 World Cup, scheduled in Australia in October-November this year.
Karthik, who was adjudged player of the match on Saturday said, “I have bigger goals. I’ve been working really hard. My aim is to do something special for the country. This is part of my journey. I am doing everything I can to be part of the India team.
“Feels good to know that people associate calmness with me. Positions and calmness come from preparation,” added Karthik, following the 16-run win against Rishabh Pant’s side.
