Ready to hear DK, the commentator, in WTC final? Details Inside

It seems KKR vice-captain Dinesh Karthik has been enjoying his new role as a commentator quite a bit. After joining the Sky Sports commentary panel for the India-England series and already being finalised for the England & Wales Cricket Board’s much-hyped upcoming league, The Hundred, Karthik will now be seen in the commentary panel of the World Test Championship Final too!

India will take on New Zealand in the final from June 18-22 in Southampton. Talking to The Hindu newspaper about this new role, Karthik said, “I was a bit fortunate the way it (commentary stint) came to me. I think I can bring to the table things like technique and strategy. I have played with the cricketers in both teams, know the way they think and will try to get into their heads.”

“The passion is still there. The prospect of playing for the country again in white-ball cricket is what keeps me going,” said Karthik, who last played an international match in July 2019 (vs NZ in Manchester).

“We live an era where fitness parameters are set for a cricketer. You have to clear those fitness tests to be picked in the Indian team. So, if you are fit, where is the question of age,” he added.
