    Dravid has led a Kartik inclusive India on 4 occasions and Kartik has bowled a combined 39 overs (9.75 overs per game), bowling out on 3 occasions. He has bowled 104 overs in his other 12 matches, which is 8 overs and 4 balls per game.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    I thought this thread was about the other Karthik. Anyways, I do think he is more of a natural keeper than Parthiv Patel, and he is not the world's worst batsman either. He was obviously nervous in his first match and the wicket was not all that good for batting and of course, the Aussie bowling and fielding was top notch. I think he would play in both the tests against RSA and then maybe, we can judge him better.



    *edit* His name is spelt Kaarthick, by the way.

    He's got potential with the bat does Dinesh Karthik. He's only 19, but his wicketkeeping is solid.

    Cricinfo don't seem to think so.

    I know where it's coming from though. The Times spelt it that way, didn't they?

    The Times spelt it that way to go with the 'thick and fast' part of the headlines. But why the double 'a' in the first part of the name ?

    Actually, Times added an extra 'a' as well, not just honestbharani.

    No his name indeed is Kaarthick and not Karthik. I had read few months back in a tamil daily that he added 'a' to his name as artrologists or someone suggested it would bring him luck . Will try to find that article

    Edit - found diff one . Hmm he chaged it for numerology

    Nope, as V. Reddy said, he had changed the way he spelt his name, for numerological reasons. He said it might bring him better luck and I dare say it has. Another interesting co-incidence is that Dinesh Kaarthick has not played in a losing Indian team as yet. And a couple of those matches were ones that many never thought India could win.
