‘Dreams do come true’: Dinesh Karthik elated with his inclusion in India’s T20 World Cup squad
After being selected in the India squad for the T20 World Cup in Australia, veteran wicket-keeper batter Dinesh Karthik on Monday shared a heartfelt message on social media.
Karthik has been serving as the finisher for RCB and the national squad after his outstanding performance in the IPL 2022 gave India another comeback. The All-India Senior Selection Committee on Monday included the seasoned cricketer in India’s 15-person team for the upcoming Men’s T20 World Cup due to his strong strike rate and finishing skills.
After the team announcement, Karthik expressed his happiness on Twitter and wrote, “Dreams do come true”.
Dreams do come true 💙

Additionally, the 37-year-old has been included in the team that will play the home series against Australia and South Africa. He has previously stated that his desire to play for India was still as strong as ever.
“The bigger vision was to play for the country. I know there is a World Cup around the corner. I want to be part of that World Cup desperately and help India cross the line,” Karthik had said.
“It’s been a long time since India won a multi-nation tournament. I want to be that person who is helping India do that. For that, you need to prepare differently, you need to be aware of so many things and try to be that player where people stand up and notice you and say, ‘hey this guy is doing something special and I wanted to be that guy,” he added.
