Dinesh Karthik is an inspiration for many who have lost hopes of returning to national teams.
When his career was looking over, he scripted another comeback after performing in the Indian Premier League 2022.
He last played for the India team after the 2019 World Cup before his latest comeback and is currently participating in the ongoing Asia Cup 2022, where he was preferred over Rishabh Pant in the first match against Pakistan.
Karthik has the longest career span in T20Is, surpassing Dwayne Bravo and Chris Gayle of West Indies.
