Dinesh Karthik has been in terrific form in recent months. While he was exceptional for Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 2022, he is doing the same for Team India. DK has been extremely dangerous in the death overs and his RCB coach Sanjay Bangar revealed a piece of interesting information about it. In this article, we take a look at the interesting training method used by Dinesh Karthik that makes him a beast at the death.
An interesting training method used by Dinesh Karthik
In IPL 2022, Dinesh Karthik scored 330 runs at a strike rate of 183. He almost inevitably increased the run rate in the final few overs of the batting innings. The way in which he hits the balls in the death overs has left everyone surprised. While DK’s range against pace was always known, his timing and power behind the shots have also improved a lot.
Hence, it is interesting to know how Dinesh trains for it. Sanjay Bangar, who saw the player closely for over two months, had to say this about the player’s training methods:
Very interesting from Sanjay Bangar on how DK bats for the death overs in the nets: He prefers to bat in open nets because it makes him feel good about how far and where he has hit the ball, which boosts his confidence further#INDvSAAdvertisement

It is an interesting strategy by DK, who is working both on his skillset and the mindset during the training. The youngsters in the game could also follow this practice in the coming years.
DK is all set for a place in the 2022 T20 World Cup squad
Meanwhile, Dinesh Karthik has all but cemented his spot for the 2022 T20 World Cup. In four games against South Africa, DK has already had two good performances. On Australian pitches, it is necessary that Team India has players who are good against pace. Especially in the death overs, there are very few batters currently in India who do better than Dinesh. He is also someone with loads of experience and has the drive to win the event for India. Hence, he will be in the plans for the competition.
