The wicketkeepers are performing very well in the Indian Premier League 2019. The 10 batsmen who made the most runs are four wicketkeepers. Among them, Johnny Bairstow of Sunrisers Hyderabad (445, number two), KL Rahul of Kings XI Punjab (441, number four), Quinton de Kock of Mumbai Indians (378, Ninth), and Rishabh Pant of Delhi Capitals (336 , At number 10). Along with this, six of the six IPL Centuries this year have been organized by three wicketkeepers. It includes Bairsto (114 runs against Royal Challengers Bangalore), Rahul (100 not out against Mumbai Indians) and Sanju Samson of Rajasthan Royals (102 not out against Sunrisers Hyderabad).

This time the highest run average in the IPL is also the name of the wicketkeeper. Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (104.66) is on top of this list. In fact, Dhoni and De Kock are the batsmen who make the most runs for their franchise. And even though two other wicketkeepers - Jos Buttler of Rajasthan Royals and Parthiv Patel of Bangalore are not included in the batsmen who make the most runs but they have scored three and two half centuries respectively. This IPL has played a total of 11 wicket-keeper batsmen. They include Sam Billings and Nicholas Puran who have not played in most of the matches for their team. Apart from these there was another name that did not join this party till Thursday evening. And that was Kolkata Knight Riders captain Dinesh Karthik.

Before the Kolkata match against Rajasthan Royals, Karthik had just scored a half century. His team had to face defeat in this half-century against Delhi Capitals. His batting average was 16.70, which can be said to be his second worst year in his IPL individually. But on Thursday, Karthik's ball talk fervently. The wickets kept falling around him but he scored 97 runs in 50 balls. This is the second highest score made by any batsman of KKR in the IPL. Earlier, Brendon McCullum made 158 against Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2008. Karthik hit seven fours and nine sixes in this innings. He scored more than 50 percent in the team's score (175). Cricket commentator Harsha Bhogale wanted to see how KKR's team plays if they go to bat early. In his column written in the Times of India before KKR-Rajasthan match, Bhogale had written, "Karthik should not bat below number 5." Kartik did so and he himself came to bat on number four.

So, who is the happiest of the batting batting of Karthik? Of course, it is difficult to say this for KKR, because it was the sixth consecutive defeat and it became difficult for the playoffs. But Dhoni, Hardik Pandya and now Karthik are in form of all-finisher and it is also a punishing top order with big players such as Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli. Team India is looking for a strong and complete batting unit for the 2019 World Cup. And as Dhoni is struggling with acute pain, Karthik can be said to be known as a back-up wicket-keeper with more fit and positive attitude than ever before in the world's biggest tournament. In such a case, his innings against Rajasthan can be called the step taken in the right direction. Pant's supporters may have been 'assailants' but Karthik's defense looks strong.
