IPL 2022: Dinesh Karthik has been one of the top-notch performers for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League.
The veteran wicketkeeper-batter unleashed his true colours in the middle-order. He scored runs at the rate of knots and took the attack to the cleaners when it mattered the most.
RCB largely benefitted from his services in the group stage. Faf du Plessis and Co finished fourth on the points table as they managed to win eight games and lost the rest of the six games.
After that, RCB went a step ahead by beating Lucknow Super Giants in the Eliminator clash at the iconic Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Faf du Plessis and Co won the game by 14 runs.
They will lock horns with Rajasthan Royals in the second qualifier today at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The winner of this fixture will take on Gujarat Titans in the final on May 29 at the same venue.
Dinesh Karthik has played all the 14 games for Royal Challengers Bangalore. He scored 324 runs at an impressive batting average of 64.80 including one half-century to his name.
