The Net Worth Of Dinesh Karthik

Dinesh Karthik is one of the most experienced players in the country right now. The right-handed batsman made his India debut before any other active player in the national team at the moment. As a result, he has earned a good amount of fortune in his long cricketing career. So here we take a look at The Net Worth Of Dinesh Karthik.

Karthik arrived at the international stage in 2004 after a string of centuries in the 2002/03 season for the Tamil Nadu Under-19 side. But then again he became one of the several wicketkeeper-batsmen who did not get a long run in the Indian team because of the emergence of MS Dhoni. However, Karthik was perhaps the luckiest one as he got ample chances to prove himself.’

After being in and out of the team, he replaced Virender Sehwag in the 2007 tour of England as an opener. He made an immediate impact. Showing a  good technique in tough English conditions, Karthik ended the Test series as India’s highest run-getter, ahead of some big names like Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly, and the great Sachin Tendulkar.

His contributions at the top of the order helped India win the series 2-1. He was also a part of the team that won the inaugural World T20 in 2007.

But Karthik soon found himself out of the team due to his poor form. He made a comeback in 2008 – picked in the Indian side for all three formats for a tour of New Zealand. However, his poor performances continued over the following year and did not allow him to cement a place in the team.

A stunning show in the domestic season then saw him returning to the ODI side for the 2013 Champions Trophy in England. He did reasonably well in India’s unbeaten campaign, starting off with two centuries in the warm-up matches and playing handy knocks whenever the opportunities arrived.

But his start-stop international career never quite took off. Consequently, even in 2018, he is struggling to cement his place.

But Karthik continues to be a giant in domestic cricket and the Indian Premier League. He was bought at INR 12.5 crore by Delhi Daredevils in the 2014 auction and the next year, he netted INR 10.5 crore from Royal Challengers Bangalore. He was acquired by Gujarat Lions for INR 2.3 crore in 2016. In 2018, Kolkata Knight Riders shelled out INR 7.4 crores to acquire his services.

But his long career has helped him acquire quite a fortune. So without further ado, we take a look at The Net Worth Of Dinesh Karthik.

Karthik’s Net Worth is $5 Million dollars (Rs.33 Crores). He earns an annual Income of $600,000 dollars (Rs.4 Crores). His net worth has seen a hike of 32% over the past few years.
