Dinesh eying Vijay Hazare Trophy
It was a match between India and Pakistan and the latter went on to win it by three wickets. Dinesh Karthik who was given chance in World Cup 2019 campaign was not recalled after the showpiece event anymore. The selectors have decided to prefer Rishabh Pant as the primary wicket-keeper for India across all the three formats. But with Pant struggling a bit recently the Tamil Nadu wicket-keeper will like to utilize the platform of Vijay Hazare trophy to make a comeback.
