Dinesh Karthik was not part of the West Indies tour because of his poor performance in the World Cup 2019. In place of him, new young players like Manish Pandey, Shreyas Iyer etc. were given place in the team.
But if we see Karthik performance in the IPL 2018, he was an asset to the team. He was given the cap of captain after Gautam Gambhir switched to Delhi Daredevils. Under Karthik’s captaincy, the team gave a good performance as they just missed the final. He brought out best from the team.
