Dinesh Karthik has lauded Team India for becoming the number one side in T20Is. The Men in Blue recently climbed to the pinnacle of the ICC Men’s T20I team rankings following their 3-0 sweep of West Indies, surpassing England in the rankings.
The strong bench strength is one of the reasons behind the brilliant performance. Suryakumar Yadav, Venkatesh Iyer, and debutant Ravi Bishnoi have been in exceptional touch.
India will face Sri Lanka in the three-match T20I series, with the first match scheduled to be played in Lucknow.
The Rohit Sharma-led team rested Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant from the third and final T20I at the Eden Gardens, while Jasprit Bumrah was rested from the series.
Despite their absence, India won the games. Karthik praised the reserve strength of the national team.
“The quality at the disposal is phenominal. When you talk about good teams, they always have a good bench strength, and India haave great benhc strength.”
“If you take the series against West Indies, they have rested Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant and Jasprit Bumrah but still one, which shows the quality of the side.”
