In a Friday matchup versus Australia in Nagpur that was affected due to weather, Karthik showed his finishing class. Dinesh Karthik, who came into the game needing just 13 runs off 7 deliveries, smashed 10* off 2 (1 six and 1 four) to lead the Men in Blue to a much-needed victory.
Besides his finishing skills which he has showcased many times for India now, there are other topics worth bringing up. Such as Karthik’s unusual helmet and the factors that led to his choice.
For the unknown, the 37-year-old sensation wears a helmet that is quite distinctive-looking. The helmet worn by Karthik resembles those worn during baseball and American football contests. It is not sphere-shaped and has no center bulge.
Karthik’s equipment is obviously equipped with additional metal grills to guard against the leather ball. However, there are some other explanations for why Dinesh Karthik favours these over more conventional ones.
- To begin with, Dinesh’s helmets fit better on the head and are more ergonomically sound.
- They are also lighter.
- Additionally, the tiny gaps at the top, sides, and back improve ventilation and perspiration evaporation.
- As a result of India’s new cool-blue jersey. The floodlights make Dinesh Karthik’s helmet shine like a blue sun, making it stand out more than ever. In short, the helmet looks very cool on the wicketkeeper-batter.
This is not the first time that Karthik has donned such a helmet. Karthik’s wicket-keeping helmet has frequently resembled a baseball face protector guard in both international cricket and the IPL (permitted by the rules of cricket).
Rahul Tripathi, an uncapped Indian batter who played alongside Karthik at Knight Riders last season (and is now with Sunrisers Hyderabad), dons a batting helmet that is similar to this one. Back in the day, players like former England batter James Taylor and Michael Carberry, as well as former Sri Lanka captain Kumar Sangakkara, use to wear such helmets.
