Dinesh Karthik shared a few memories on social media on Wednesday, after his debut commentary appearance at the World Test Championship (WTC) final earned him praise from all around the world.
Sunil Gavaskar, Nasser Hussain, Kumar Sangakkara, Ian Bishop, Lisa Sthalekar, Michael Atherton, Simon Doull, and Rob Key were among the stars on the commentary panel, which included Sunil Gavaskar, Nasser Hussain, Kumar Sangakkara, Ian Bishop, Lisa Sthalekar, Michael Atherton, Simon Doull, and Rob Key.
He dubbed the group ‘The Mic Gang,’ and expressed his ‘whole pleasure’ at the occasion.
After most other experienced commentators stepped out due to severe quarantine requirements for a one-off game, Dinesh Karthik was the only other Indian voice on the ICC panel.
Karthik not only won appreciation from his peers for his intelligent comments and unique humor
throughout, but he also gained a new fan base by serving as their morning ‘weatherman’ from Southampton.
Very impressed with @DineshKarthik‘s debut in the commentary box.

Abhinav Mukund, the India and Tamil Nadu opener, used the chance to taunt his buddy wonderfully.
Mukund, who has played seven Tests for India, was drawn to Dinesh Karthik’s unusual shoes, which have unique front spikes. He wrote in a comment:
“Spikes seem to be on the wrong side of the shoe”
The Kolkata Knight Riders, Dinesh Karthik’s IPL team, also praised him for his work as a commentator.
“Impressive debut, DK,” a comment from the franchise read.
In the inaugural edition of ‘The Hundred,’ England’s 100-ball championship, Dinesh Karthik will be the lone Indian commentator. In terms of his cricketing career, he has stated that he aspires to qualify for the T20 World Cup and return to the national team as soon as feasible.
In the second half of the IPL 2021, he may have to lead KKR. The inquiry into incumbent skipper Eoin Morgan’s alleged racist previous tweets on Twitter is still ongoing.
In the event of a clash, other English players have stated that they would prefer to serve their country over the tournament.
