Dinesh Karthik is gearing up for his commentary debut at The Hundred on Thursday. The Indian wicket-keeper, who is the latest fresh face behind the mic, has been a revelation of sorts in his short broadcasting career, making his mark during the World Test Championship final and England’s tour of India earlier this year while with Sky Sports. Karthik will remain part of the Sky Sports coverage when Oval Invincibles take on Manchester Originals in the Men’s opener.

Dinesh Karthik took to Twitter and posted a picture on the sidelines while on coverage for The Hundred. Karthik’s attire, which has caught the eye among viewers and fans, was again very vibrant which earned him plaudits from the netizens. While the Kolkata Knight Riders star did not make his commentary debut during the Women’s opener, he appeared on the coverage from the sidelines, giving his insights onto the new format.
