Dinesh Karthik boycott?
Unexpectedly, Rishabh Ball has been given the post of vice-captain in the series. With this, he has been confirmed to participate in all the tournaments. If this happens, senior player Dinesh Karthik will not be able to make the XI squad.
In this situation, fans are accusing Dinesh Karthik of deliberately giving the post of vice-captain to Rishabh Pant. With the presence of the likes of Shreyas Iyer and Hardik Pandya, there are rumors that Dinesh Karthik has only been sidelined by the sudden appointment of Rishabh as the vice-captain.
