Bat will not work in World Cup

Karthik has played some important innings for RCB during IPL 2024. During this time he has been seen in the role of finisher. In such a situation, speculations were being made whether Karthik might get a chance to play in the T20 World Cup 2024. Karthik, who performed well in the IPL, gets rusty in the T20 World Cup. If we look at his performance in the T20 World Cup, it is very disappointing.

Karthik’s performance in T20 World Cup
