Indian cricketer Dinesh Karthik said that he will be available for selection and is willing to represent Tamil Nadu in the upcoming Vijay Hazare Trophy.
During an interaction in Chennai, the India wicketkeeper-batsman said that he will inform the Tamil Nadu selectors regarding his availability for the white ball tournament.
“I will inform Tamil Nadu selectors that I am available for the Vijay Hazare trophy. That is something I am very keen on playing,” he said.
The 38-year-old added that he would want to play both the Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy as well as Vijay Hazare to prepare for next year’s Indian Premier League (IPL).
However, the Tamil Nadu stalwart said that he might be involved in the World Cup 2023 in India as a commentator which will clash with the domestic T20 tournament.
“Ideally I would want to play both the white ball tournaments so that it makes sense when I play IPL,” he said.
TNPL, a super platform for youngsters
While talking about Tamil Nadu cricket, Karthik said that it will achieve great things and the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) is a great platform for youngsters to use.
“I think the current Tamil Nadu will achieve great things. When we watch the TNPL we realise that there are so many talents out there and they will come forward and do special things. TNPL is a super platform that these youngsters can use,” he said.
He added that if Tamil Nadu is playing good in white ball cricket, then TNPL is the part of the reason.
“I’m sure with this level of facilities and infrastructure, the Tamil Nadu players, wherever they are, will perform well.”
