Mumbai: Wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik, who was the second-costliest buy at Rs 12.5 crore in the IPL auction at Bangalore earlier this week, is keen to play under Delhi Daredevils coach Gary Kirsten in season 7 of the T20 tournament starting April 9.

"Everybody knows him as a wonderful human being and his track record has been phenomenal. It is going to be wonderful to be working with a person like him and you require a calm head in T20 and he will definitely bring that to the table," Karthik told reporters here about ex-India coach Kirsten.

Only Yuvraj Singh, who was bought for Rs 14 crore by Royal Challengers, fetched higher price than Karthik at the two-day auction held on February 12 and 13.
