New Delhi: With a new domestic season just round the corner, out-of-favour wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik is planning to work on his batting to return to the Indian team as a specialist batsman.
Karthik said Wednesday that with Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the side, he can only be a reserve keeper, so he is preparing hard to score runs and make a comeback purely as a batsman. (Dinesh Karthik to Marry Dipika Pallikal in 2015)
"As long as Dhoni is around, I can't think of being the wicket-keeper batsman of the Indian team. So I have to concentrate on my batting," said Karthik, on the sidelines of an event promoting jewellery brand Platinum here.
