Dinesh Karthik is the positive for Indian team

India is Sri Lanka to play a Test series. They have played practices alongside with Sri Lanka Board XI. Dinesh Karthik is not a regular Test player but for the tour he has been selected for Sri Lanka tour. During the pre-match of first Test that will be taken place on 23 July 2008, he has shown very good and positive performances. He proved that an experienced company can lead the team well which Sachin and Karthik did. In Dinesh Karthik’s speech it is clear.
"It is always helpful if you start the innings with a player like Sachin. He gives you confidence and tells you how to pace your innings," Karthik said. "He was telling me to take my time and play. It was not a wicket where you can come and start playing shots. I was trying to do that."
Dinesh Karthik who is an irregular wicketkeeper of India team, has got chance with the Test team for the absence of ODI captain MS Dhoni. India’s earlier 5 wickets downfall made difficult to overcome 224 runs. But Sachin Tendulkar and Dinesh Karthik’s strong partnership moved India in 196 runs.
