Irfan Pathan on Dinesh Karthik: This year has proved to be very good for Dinesh Karthik so far. After batting brilliantly in IPL 2022, he also made his mark in the South Africa series. Many former cricketers have become convinced of the tremendous change in his batting style. Irfan Pathan is also included in this list. Irfan has compared Dinesh Karthik’s explosive batting with AB de Villiers.
Irfan has said, ‘You will not find a player with so much range. I wouldn’t compare him (Dinesh Karthik) with AB de Villiers on merit, but his range is very similar to that of de Villiers. He can hit you in the sweep, he can hit the switch, he has all kinds of shots. He hits strong shots in the leg side. The special thing is that the way he uses his steps to come in the line of the ball, it is very good. Irfan said these things in a conversation with Star Sports after the fifth match between India and South Africa was washed away by rain.
Irfan said, ‘He plays both fast bowlers and spinners effectively. If you ask him to hit with the first ball, he can do that too. It is very important for a finisher and Dinesh Karthik can do it.
