Age is just a number! Dinesh Karthik turns into a beast mode, slams a 23-ball 53* vs MI

Dinesh Karthik has been firing with all guns blazing in IPL 2024. In five innings, he has accumulated 143 runs at an astronomical average and strike rate of 71.50 and 190.66, respectively

Veteran wicket-keeper Dinesh Karthik defied age once again with a scintillating half-century to propel Royal Challengers Bengaluru to a formidable 196/8 against Mumbai Indians (MI) at the Wankhede Stadium in IPL 2024 on April 11.

Karthik’s unbeaten knock of 53 runs came off a mere 23 balls, a masterclass in aggressive batting. His knock was crucial in counteracting Jasprit Bumrah’s fiery spell of 5/21 for MI. The 38-year-old batsman smashed five boundaries and four lusty sixes, taking apart the MI bowling attack with exceptional strokeplay.

Karthik found the gaps with precision and played shots all over the park. He even accumulated a crucial 19 runs off the last over bowled by Akash Madhwal to wrest back momentum for RCB. This late surge ensured they posted a challenging total despite losing wickets at regular intervals.
