“I believed he could be the next Sachin Tendulkar. That’s how I saw Dinesh. I used to go…Take my father and go and see Dinesh Karthik play those under-19 and under-17 games. And he just used to wow people. That factor where he used to steam roll bowler and just smash them,” Ashwin concluded.

Well, as Ravichandran Ashwin imagined, Dinesh Karthik went on to become the player of the Indian cricket team. But, unfortunately, he failed to get those big runs under his belt. He is still present in the team but not a certain starter, which tells you the story.
