You Could Give Dinesh Karthik Some More Overs, But Every Coach And Captain Comes With A Different Plan, Let’s Back Them – Maninder Singh
Former India National Cricket Team spinner Maninder Singh has backed Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid’s decision to bat wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik mainly after 15 overs in T20Is, saying that Indian management is experimenting with new things and there is nothing wrong in doing some experiments.
Dinesh Karthik got his India recall after his outstanding performance for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. Karthik played the role of a finisher for the Faf du Plessis-led side in the IPL 2022 and did a fantastic job. Also, he has been allotted the role of a finisher in the India National Cricket Team. However, several cricket pundits have questioned India’s decision to play Karthik as a specialist finisher.

Meanwhile, former India spinner Maninder Singh, during a select-media interaction organised by Sony Sports Network, told Hindustan Times:
“This is a new experiment that we are doing and there’s nothing wrong in doing some experiments before you go into the World Cup. If it succeeds then everybody’s gonna start saying ‘what a wonderful job done’.”
I would love to see him bat for more overs – Maninder Singh on Dinesh Karthik
Former India spinner further said that Karthik is capable of batting up the order, but the team management has got some different plans for the wicketkeeper-batsman and one needs to back the head coach Rahul Dravid, captain Rohit Sharma and BCCI selectors.
“Even though the kind of form Dinesh Karthik is in like we’ve seen in even in the IPL, you could give him some more overs, there’s no doubt about it but then every coach comes with a different plan, every captain comes with a different plan. I feel we need to back our coach and captain and our selectors as well.
“They are trying these things, if it doesn’t work out, then you can always go back but you’ve got to keep on trying. But like I said, I would love to see him bat for more overs but if this is what Rahul Dravid, his captain and the selectors have decided, I think let’s back them,” he added.
