Name: Dinesh Karthik

Age: 22

Last seen: On India’s tour to England at the opening position.

Case history: Had an exceptionally good run as opening batsman in the test series in England. That was seen as a sign of versatility, and he was thereafter shuffled across the batting order with gay abandon. Soon enough the man’s consistency with the bat vanished, as did he from the playing eleven.

Reward: The first person with any information on the reappearance of Dinesh Karthik on the Indian team will be rewarded by a fine batting performance.

I had made a point about Dinesh Karthik’s future a month and a half ago. Looks like I wasn’t wrong. Click here for more.

    Umm…I suppose you didn’t watch today’s match. I wasn’t rewarded with any batting performance, though. (For one, I never watched the match. The last cricket match I saw was one of the ODIs, guess the last one, in England.I saw on the news that he caught (was that Ponting) off the other Karthik’s bowling. He could’ve been a sub, I don’t know.)

    Also, India have not yet played a test since the last one at England. I’m sure you’ll see him open against Australia.

    In One-dayers, I’m more keen on seeing Badrinath!

    Karthik, hmmm… I feel that debang gandhi (who used close his eyes while batting) is better than him!!!!!!!
