Dinesh Karthik is an Indian professional cricket player and the existing vice-captain of the Kolkata Knight Riders. He also captains the Tamil Nadu Cricket Team. He made his debut for the Indian cricket team in 2004. He made his maiden Test century against Bangladesh and was India’s leading scorer in their Test tour of England, helping India win their first series in England in 21 years. After a drop in form in September 2007, Karthik was dropped from the Test team. He has made only sporadic international appearances since then, although he continues to score well domestically. He holds the record for the highest number of catches taken as a wicketkeeper in the Indian Premier League, surpassing the previous record set by MS Dhoni.
