Aakash Chopra has highlighted that Dinesh Karthik is playing the role of AB de Villiers for Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 2022.

Ahead of Royal Challengers Bangalore’s game against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Dr DY Patil Sports Academy, Mumbai on March 30, Dinesh Karthik spoke about his role as a finisher for RCB. In their opening game against Punjab Kings, Karthik’s unbeaten 32 off 14 deliveries helped RCB surpass the 200 mark. 

Speaking on the Inside RCB show on Star Sports, Dinesh Karthik said, “My aim is to hit as many boundaries as I can in the middle order. It is always a challenge, but it’s an interesting one for everybody. My role is to achieve whatever we can in the backend of the game and try to do whatever is required for the team, either setting a target or helping win the game. So, that is what I will be focussing on.”

Despite posting more than 200 runs against Punjab, the team led by Faf du Plessis lost to rivals.
