Ex-India captain, Krishnamachari Srikkanth, has discarded Dinesh Karthik as a fine finisher for the Indian team as the former cricketing legend hailed Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, and Hardik Pandya over Dinesh Karthik. K Shrikanth while speaking at a show on Star Sports said, “What do you mean by a finisher? In my book, the finisher is the guy who can take the batting from the 8th or 12th over and go on till the 20th over, and win the match for India. He starts from the 8th or the 6th over, but where is the good finisher? KL Rahul is a good finisher, Rohit Sharma is a good finisher. They go opening by the way.”

He continued, “I just can’t say that you bat the last 5 overs and say he’s a finisher. I would like to term Dinesh Karthik, he definitely finds a place in my team too. I would call Dinesh Karthik a fine finisher but actual finishers are guys like Suryakumar Yadav. He is a brilliant finisher. You have Rishabh Pant, who is a brilliant finisher. You have Hardik Pandya, who is a brilliant finisher too. I think I would like to clarify that a finisher is a guy who takes the team from the 8th over and goes on till the 20th over.”
