Karthik’s lack of run in the national side can be attributed to the fact that he played in the MS Dhoni era where the doors to the Indian team were almost closed for the wicketkeepers. Karthik, just like other wicketkeepers in the country, had to wait for his chances and got an entry into the side only when Dhoni was rested.

The Tamil Nadu batsman has a tremendous record in domestic cricket yet he has only 23 Tests, 72 ODIs and 9 T20Is to his credit. His stats in international cricket are far below par as compared to domestic games. The incessant chances didn’t help his cause.

There were a few occasions when he made it to the national side as a pure batsman with Dhoni being in the squad too. But somehow, he couldn’t replicate the performances at the big stage.
