Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar took to Instagram on Friday to wish wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik, who will be making his debut in the commentary box, luck ahead of the World Test Championship final. Gavaskar shared a picture with Karthik and wrote “He made his India Test debut when I was a consultant to the Indian cricket team. Now he will make his commentary debut with the WTC finals. I’m sure he will do well in the box too. Good luck @dk00019 !”
The wicketkeeper-batsman thanked Gavaskar for his “blessings”. “Will be glad to be alongside you, thanks for the blessings sir,” Karthik left a comment on the legendary batsman’s post.
India are set to take on New Zealand in the World Test Championship (WTC) final, beginning at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton from June 18.
