Powered by Firework He may not play for the national team but that doesn’t mean he’s stopping either. On Monday, Tamil Nadu wicket-keeper Dinesh Karthik pulled off a stunner in the final of the Deodhar Trophy match between India B and India C. The 34-year-old is currently out-of-favour for India’s wicketkeeping options but he is a workhorse and comes up with something great pretty often.Advertisement Image Courtesy: sportsrush.comIt was the 9th over when Parthiv Patel edged a Ishan Porel delivery, but Karthik dived left with a full-stretch and took an absolute stunning one-handed catch. What important here is that the ball was traveling to first slip but wouldn’t have reached the fielder, the reason why Karthik decided to go himself and took the catch without any hesitation.Naturally, it went viral on social media and fans, started mentioning how Karthik can be a potential replacement for Rishabh Pant, who is yet to find his form with the bat and the gloves.Advertisement Check out the stunner here:India B started the game poorly, losing opener Ruturaj Gaikwad for a duck in the first over itself, but despite the early blows, India B put on 283 for 7 in the scoreboard with Kedar Jadhav (83) and 17-year-old Yashasvi Jaiswal (54) helped their team set a decent target. Not to forget Vijay Shankar (45) and Krishnappa Gowtham (35 not out) also played their part for the Parthiv-led team. Advertisementlast_img read more
