IPL 2018, SRH vs KKR, Qualifier 2: Dinesh Karthik has made a strong case of being named as the best wicketkeeper of the tournament

Dinesh Karthik is the only wicketkeeper in India who has the caliber to replace former Indian skipper MS Dhoni in the limited overs team. Karthik has been in amazing form whether it is in front of the stumps with the bat or behind the stumps with his gloves. The Kolkata Knight Riders’ (KKR) skipper’s showed off his skills in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 qualifier 2 against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).

In the 11th over of SRH’s innings, Piyush Chawla got the better of Wriddhiman Saha as he tried to work the ball behind square leg but mistimed it. Saha went for a run and then tried to get back into the crease. But Karthik was too fast as he picked the ball and dislodged the bails in a flash.
