Karthik forced selectors to choose him after showing exemplary finishing skills in the IPL. He last played for India at the 2019 ODI World Cup.
He praised the Royal Challengers Bangalore team management for strongly supporting him in the finisher role.
“I think the clarity they gave me to perform the role I wanted to play, in many ways I’m indebted to RCB for choosing me and giving me this role, for “believing in me and then coming here and trying to do my best for the RCB team. So overall it’s a very, very happy feeling.”
If you believe yourself, everything will fall into place! ✨Thank you for all the support and trust…the hard work… https://t.co/0pqhyH0zYl

Karthik’s main goal is to play the T20 World Cup in Australia later this year.
“There are so many young boys who would put their names forward for selection, to see the skills that are out there and to believe that this is the guy we need for the World Cup. I think that’s a very very feeling. humiliating.
“I know this trip is still there for the World Cup, but to be part of the scheme of things and have the opportunity to show my skills, I’m very proud of that,” he added.
Karthik played 26 Tests, 94 ODIs and 32 T20s for India.
