Nothing but love from cricket fraternity for Dinesh Karthik as fairytale ending eludes IPL legend

Karthik concluded his IPL career with 4,842 runs in 257 appearances, including 22 fifties

Veteran Royal Challengers Bangaluru finisher, Dinesh Karthik may have had his last game in the Indian Premier League (IPL). The team’s exit from the IPL 2024 after losing the Eliminator against the Rajasthan Royals also meant the end of one of their favourite players’ outstanding careers in the league. Heartfelt wishes poured in for the veteran, accompanied by a guard of honour from RCB players.

Dinesh Karthik’s illustrious career in IPL

Dinesh Karthik played for six different IPL clubs during the course of his 17-year career. He debuted with the Delhi Daredevils (now the Delhi Capitals) in their inaugural season in 2008. He moved to Punjab in 2011 and thereafter played for the Mumbai Indians, Gujarat Lions, Kolkata Knight Riders, and RCB.

It was Karthik’s second spell with RCB. In 2015, he made his debut after winning the auction for ₹10.5 crore. However, he struggled with the bat, accumulating only 141 runs in 16 matches. The guy from Tamil Nadu never gives up. He continued returning in one way or another to remain one of the only seven cricketers to feature in every edition of the IPL since its inception in 2008.

Dinesh Karthik finished the current season with 326 runs in 15 matches, an average of 36.22 and a mouthwatering strike rate of 187.36.
