Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) wicketkeeper-batter, Dinesh Karthik, has played for numerous teams in the IPL so far, but he was particularly overwhelmed by the support given by RCB fans in the IPL 2022.

Notably, Karthik has played for Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals), Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings), Mumbai Indians, Gujarat Lions, Kolkata Knight Riders, and RCB so far. Karthik amassed 330 runs in 16 matches at an exceptional average of 55 and a strike rate of 183.33 in the IPL 2022.

He was signed by RCB for Rs 5.50 crores in the IPL 2022 mega action, and the veteran cricketer repaid the franchise’s faith in him during the tournament.

After RCB’s hopes of winning a maiden IPL title came to an end with a 7-wicket loss to Rajasthan Royals (RR) in Qualifier 2, Karthik has shared his experience of playing for the RCB in the tournament.

Dinesh Karthik said in a video posted by RCB’s official YouTube handle: “I have been part of many teams but this is the best fanbase I have ever been part of because the cheers that I have gotten in the ground, I have never gotten anywhere else. I am really thankful, without fans like you, people like me at this age would not be pushing myself to try and achieve what I am trying to achieve.”

The veteran keeper further explained, “Thank you so much, you guys mean a lot in my life because it is one thing playing the IPL but when you are able to put a smile on people’s faces, that is the real reason why you play sport. I am really happy, I am really grateful that I have found this franchise and this fanbase who have literally accepted me with open arms.”

He signed off by saying, “I am blessed in many ways to achieve what we did as a team, but most importantly, the fans who have come on my social media feed, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, all these places and the way they talk about me, I do read a little bit here and there. The engagement they give, so much positivity, that is where I feel I have let you all down little bit his year but we will try really hard next season.”
