Dinesh KARTHIK - India - Test Record


Dinesh is pictured above during his splendid knock of 91 in India's 1st innings of the 3rd Test against England at The Oval in August 2007. Karthik's efforts helped the Indians run up a massive 1st innings score of 664 but the match was to finish in a draw thanks to a gritty performance from England in their 2nd innings.
It was India who took the honours, though, courtesy of their victory in the 2nd Test at Trent Bridge, thus securing only the third ever series win in England in their history, the previous successes coming in 1971 & 1986. Karthik had been expected to be a weak link in the India line-up given that he found himself in the unusual position of opening the batting but his 6 innings produced 263 runs at an impressive average of 43.83.
