The five-match T20I series between India and South Africa will be concluded after today’s game in Bengaluru. Th scoreline stands at 2-2 after four matches. India is yet to play 10 more T20Is before the ICC World Cup in Australia.

However, Ashish Nehra feels that Dinesh Karthik has already confirmed his place in the team. 

Making a return to the Indian team after the 2019 World Cup, Karthik has scored 92 runs in the series at a strike rate of 158. He scored a fifty in the fourth T20I match.

Nehra was all praise for the 37-year-old. “He can score heavily in the last 4 overs. India have Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant, Ravindra Jadeja and then the experience of Karthik. He can help the Men in Blue chase down even targets of 200 in Australia,” he said. 

“He has already booked his place in the T20 World Cup squad,” he added.

Karthik is also a part of the team for the two-match T20I series against Ireland.
