About Dinesh Kartik Krishnakumar Dinesh Karthik (Tamil: கிருஷ்ணகுமார் தினேஷ் கார்த்திக் About this sound pronunciation (help·info) (born 1 June 1985 in Madras, Tamil Nadu, India) is a wicketkeeper-batsman in the Indian cricket team. He was a batsman in his junior career, but turned to wicket-keeping in order to improve his future prospects. Making his ODI and Test cricket debut in late 2004, he was the regular wicket-keeper in Tests, making rare appearances in ODIs. He was replaced as Test wicketkeeper by Mahendra Singh Dhoni in late 2005. After donning the mantle of an opener for his domestic cricket team, he was recalled to the national squad as a batsman in late-2006 after injuries and form slumps hit other batsmen, playing occasional matches in both forms of cricket on the tour to South Africa. Following India's elimination from the first round of the 2007 Cricket World Cup, the selectors made multiple changes, and Karthik became an opening batsman in the Test team and regularly played ODIs, batting in the middle order. He made his maiden Test century against Bangladesh and then was India's leading scorer in the Test tour of England, helping his country to win its first series in England in 21 years. However, Karthik suffered a form slump in late 2007 and was dropped from the team, and since then has only made sporadic appearances.
