If you are following the India – Sri Lanka cricket series, you would have noticed that Dinesh Karthik has yet again been lucky to be included in the squad – or actually is it mere coincidence?

One key factor that has been mentioned is that Kris Srikkanth is the selector and that could be a main reason why Dinesh Karthik is getting his chances again and again.

Coincidentally, Dhoni has been suspended for two matches and that has also given Karthik yet another opportunity to play.

In the last match, he was very good in giving Sachin Tendulkar a good support helping India go through the formalities of completing the win without any other hiccups.

With Yuvraj also out and Dhoni sitting out for another match, we have to wait and see if Karthik makes best use of this opportunity.

We do know Rahul Dravid once called him a thinking cricketer, but lets see if he makes best use of this chance.
