Check out what Ajay Jadeja says on Dinesh Karthik’s role in the team

Speaking about Karthik’s role in the current set-up,  Ajay Jadeja explained how what the management and skipper is thinking about his batting position. “Interesting this is that he came even before MS Dhoni and hung on for so many years. The most impressive thing about him is his perseverance. Many people leave cricket at this age. But he worked on his game and thought, ‘What is it that I can do the best’, and decided to play the last four overs,” Jadeja said on FanCode

“The Indian team has got so much talent for every position. They had players like Suryakumar, Rohit, Virat, Hardik, and Pant, but the selectors kept Karthik for the last four overs. Kudos to Indian cricket for this thinking but I feel you don’t assign roles to your players. The game won’t be running according to your terms.”

“But I have immense respect for Karthik and his love for the game. At 37, doing commentary is easy for him but he instead chose to follow his passion,” he added.

These are small tick-boxes that we need to have at this point. But the ultimate goal is to do well in the T20 World Cup,” Karthik told Ashwin on BCCI TV. Even during the time he played for RCB Karthik said that his mind is towards making a statement and getting selected for the world cup squad and winning the trophy
