From Commentator to IPL player to father
Dinesh Karthik has had a busy year. At the beginning of 2021, he led Tamil Nadu to win the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, the esteemed 20-over domestic competition in India. For the Indian England series in India, he was a part of the experts’ panel of Sky Sports. Then he was a part of Kolkata Knight Riders for the Indian leg of IPL which got postponed midway.
During India’s UK tour, Karthik took on a new role. He donned the commentary hat and wanted to break the stereotype that only retire players can do commentary. His role was appreciated by the cricket fraternity.
Then he went on to play the second leg of IPL. His team reached the finals but unfortunately couldn’t go over the line.
