Dinesh Karthik failed to finish the game for the Royal Challengers Bangalore yesterday against the Kolkata Knight Riders. Karthik was the RCB’s best chance last night at the Chinnaswamy when they needed to chase down 201 runs. However, not only did he struggle throughout his 18 -ball 22 -run innings, but his misunderstanding also led to Suyash Prabhudesai being run out twice in two games, which infuriated the crowd even more.
Dinesh Karthik’s problems don’t appear to be getting better anytime soon. Karthik, who was in excellent form last year, has suffered greatly in the 2023 IPL, as his repeated mistakes have cost Royal Challengers Bangalore multiple times. Karthik’s terri ble season is starting to earn him the moniker of “one-season wonder,” after scoring 330 runs in 16 matches last year and only 83 in 8. Additionally, his inability to end games for RCB is wearing everyone out.
Karthik’s form in 2023 IPL
Karthik has played poorly in the IPL 2023, recording scores of 0, 9, 1*, 0, 28, 7, 16, and 22. Although the subsequent developments have been far from what was anticipated, he was expected to handle most of the workload for an RCB middle order that was somewhat inexperienced. Fans are not as a result impressed. Many people expressed their distress with DK on Twitter, calling him a full-time pundit and full-time cricketer, respectively, and criticizing his parallels to the great MS Dhoni in terms of his job as a finisher.
When Karthik consistently won games for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL 2022, he started to be compared to Dhoni. As a result, he was even called up to the Indian squad. At the T20 World Cup, where he severely failed, Karthik was their chosen winner before being cut from the team. Karthik returned to his commentary responsibilities during the Border-Gavaskar Trophy match against Australia and India, where Dhoni personally praised and approved of his analysis. Even some of his on-air arguments with former Australian star Mark Waugh took place.
People on social media minced no words as they trolled Karthik for his poor form in the IPL 2023. Let us have a look at some of the popular tweets about DK.
