IND vs SA: Now this South African player also praised Dinesh Karthik

Cricket South Africa spinner Keshav Maharaj has heaped praise on Dinesh Karthik, admitting that it is very difficult for an experienced Indian wicketkeeper-batsman to bowl against him. Especially when it is in perfect form. He described the veteran batsman as one of the best finishers.

Dinesh Karthik, 37, scored a brilliant half-century in the fourth T20I at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot on June 17 and was instrumental in the victory in the fourth match against South Africa. With this win, India was able to level the home series 2-2.

Let us tell you that Dinesh Karthik hit three fours in four balls in the 17th over of Keshav Maharaj and then he continued to dominate the African bowlers and played an important innings to take India to a big score. This was his first fifty in T20 International cricket and he has now become the oldest Indian batsman to score a fifty in this format.

Difficult to bowl against Dinesh Karthik: Keshav Maharaj

Talking to reporters, Keshav Maharaj said, “Dinesh Karthik is playing the role of a very serious and brilliant finisher. I think he is one of the best finishers in the game at the moment. He is able to bat in unusual areas where it becomes difficult for bowlers to bowl. We also saw in IPL 2022 how well he was batting and he was one of the best performers this season. Karthik showed his class in the fourth T20 match and batted brilliantly.

For now, the final match will be exciting for both the teams: Keshav Maharaj

He further said, ‘The series has become more exciting now as both the teams will try to capture the series by winning the last match. It was like watching the throng of fans in Rajkot and now we are looking forward to witness the same amazing crowd in Bangalore which will add to our excitement. The tour of India was great for us to test ourselves and now we will try our best to win the series against a strong Indian team.”
