Sunil Gavaskar believes Royal Challengers Bangalore wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik is capable of changing the complexion of the game in TATA IPL 2022 with his batting exploits.

Dinesh Karthik has been unstoppable in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. The veteran is playing match-winning innings match after match for Royal Challengers Bangalore.

He is still unbeaten in the 15th season of the league, with 90 runs coming from just 44 balls. Karthik has a strike of 205 in the ongoing edition of the tournament.

Karthik’s 44 off 23 was laced with 7 fours and a six, which sealed the game in RCB’s favour. Earlier, he accumulated 32 off 14 balls against Punjab Kings and 14 off 7 against Kolkata Knight Riders.

Chasing 170 runs, the Faf du Plessis-led team was out of the game at one stage with 5 down on a score of 87 runs. However, Karthik’s partnership with Shahbaz Ahmed changed the game’s flow.

Shahbaz accumulated 45 off 26 balls, including 4 fours and 3 sixes.
