During the Pant vs Karthik Debate: Harbhajan Said, “You’re Comparing DK With MS Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh”

The former India off-spinner Harbhajan Singh thinks Dinesh Karthik is a quality player, but should not be compared with MS Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh.

Karthik earned a national recall after a hiatus of three years on the basis of IPL 2022 performances for RCB. He slammed 330 runs at a strike rate of 183.33.

It certainly was his sublime form and renewed confidence, which helped Karthik to seal the spot at an age of 37. With a few match-winning performances, he eclipsed Rishabh Pant as the regular keeper of the team.

However, he has garnered 287 runs in 22 innings at an average of 20.50, which is below-par by also considering his batting position.

“I would go with Rahul Dravid because he likes Rishabh Pant but I would like Dinesh Karthik who was playing earlier. Yes, it’s so tough to bat at that number, not many could do what Dhoni and Yuvraj did and you’re comparing DK with those players, who have been champions of the game.”

In the end, the Turbanator hailed Karthik’s perseverance but added that every team wants the left-hander in the team.
