Krishna Kumar Dinesh Karthik is Indian wicket-keeper-batsman who made his debut for the Indian cricket team in 2004.

Rising through the junior ranks, Karthik made his first-class debut in late-2002 for Tamil Nadu as a 17-year-old. He is the present captain of Kolkata Knight Riders replacing Gautam Gambhir.

He played for India at the 2004 Under-19 World Cup and made his One Day International (ODI) and Test cricket debut in late 2004. Following India’s elimination from the first round of the 2007 Cricket World Cup Karthik became a non-wicket-keeping opening batsman in the Test team and regularly played ODIs, batting in the middle order.

He made his maiden Test century against Bangladesh and then was India’s leading scorer in the Test tour of England, helping India win their first series in England in 21 years. After suffering a drop in form in September 2007 he was dropped from the Test team, and since then has only made sporadic international appearances, although he continues to score heavily in domestic cricket.
