- Dhoni-Karthik started international career in 2004
- Dhoni played in the Indian team and became the captain
- Wicketkeeper Karthik kept going in and out of the team
Before MS Dhoni came to Team India, many wicket-keeper batsmen were tried, who could not cement their place due to different reasons. Some batted well and some were better at wicketkeeping. This problem of the Indian team was solved only after the arrival of Dhoni. However, there was a lot of competition between Dhoni and Karthik being wicketkeepers. Former Indian batsman Akashan Chopra has made an interesting disclosure related to both the players. He told how Dhoni had bowled against Karthik in the nets despite his refusal.
‘Dhoni don’t bowl to Kartik’
Aakash Chopra told Dinesh Karthik during a conversation on his YouTube channel, ‘I want to take you on a tour of Kenya and Zimbabwe in 2004. MS Dhoni was also a part of that tour. I clearly remember Dhoni bowling to you (Karthik) in the nets. Dhoni was my roommate so I asked him not to bowl to Karthik because he is your competitor. If you want to bowl, at least bat. What are you doing? He (Karthik) will play for India. He is almost there. Sometimes you need to play too. But Dhoni said no, no, I want to bowl.
‘If you are a good keeper then…’
At the same time, Karthik said, ‘When Dhoni stepped into international cricket, he became a force to be reckoned with in the entire country. I knew the door was closed for the rest of the wicketkeeper to bat. Actually, the keeper-batsman is always a decade long job. First there was Syed Kirmani and then came Kiran More. Cricketers like Dhoni come out in a generation. Just look at Ian Haley or Adam Gilchrist, if you are a good keeper, you will be in the team for 10-12 years. Let us inform that Karthik has played 26 Tests, 94 ODIs and 32 T20 Internationals for India. At the same time, Dhoni played 90 Tests, 395 ODIs and 98 T20 Internationals. Both started their international career in the year 2004.
