Karthik has been one of the match winners for India. He is adored for his breath-taking 8-ball 29-run innings against Bangladesh in the final of the 2018 Nidahas Trophy. The Men in Blue were in a precarious state towards the conclusion of the match, needing 34 runs off the final two overs, and Karthik’s valiant knock saved India the blushes.
