The challenges were different at each venue – Dinesh Karthik thinks playing in different conditions would help in the preparations for the T20 World Cup

The 37-year-old wicketkeeper batsman for the India national cricket team Dinesh carthic has said it would be valuable for the India national cricket team to play in different conditions ahead of the 2022 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.

The India National Cricket Team is currently involved in a five-match T20I series against the West Indies National Cricket Team. The West Indies have already played three matches and India lead the series 2-1. Now the last two games of the series will be played in Florida under different conditions.

Meanwhile, Dinesh Karthik said that the challenges will be different in different conditions and players will have to learn to adapt to the situations. At the press conference ahead of the 4th T20I, Karthik said:

“I find it very interesting because even at the World Cup three stadiums immediately come to mind: Sydney – [where] the sides are a bit narrower and the straights longer – Adelaide, we all know the sides are very narrow and the straights are long, while in Melbourne it’s the exact opposite – the straights are short and the sides very tall.

“Obviously we’re going to encounter different floors everywhere we play, so the challenges will be different.

“Here the challenges were different in every place we played. The fact that every time an opportunity presents itself, there is a certain challenge of just walking in.

“It’s pressure in itself. One of the most important things that Rohit [Sharma] and Raul [Dravid] what was talked about in the beginning of this series was adaptability and understanding of the situations. I think we’ve done that pretty well so far.”

We have the potential to field two teams or maybe even three teams – Dinesh Karthik

Veteran wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik further said that the India National Cricket Team has a rich talent pool and can field 2-3 teams at a time. He added that picking just 15 players for the 2022 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup will be a difficult task for the BCCI selectors.

“Look, right now in the Indian team we have the potential to field two teams or maybe even three teams judging by the number of players available,” he said.

“I don’t think many countries can boast of that, so 20 to 25 players, to have just 15 players play out of a good crowd of 40 players, they’re going to be like, ‘Oh my goodness! I could have made this team.
