Dinesh Kartik
Krishnakumar Dinesh Karthik, born 1 June 1985 in Madras, Tamil Nadu, India, is a wicketkeeper-batsman in the Indian cricket team. He was a batsman in his junior career, but turned to wicket-keeping in order to improve his future prospects. Making his ODI and Test cricket debut in late 2004, he was the regular wicket-keeper in Tests, making rare appearances in ODIs. He was replaced as Test wicketkeeper by Mahendra Singh Dhoni in late 2005. After donning the mantle of an opener for his domestic cricket team, he was recalled to the national squad as a batsman in late-2006 after injuries and form slumps hit other batsmen, playing occasional matches in both forms of cricket on the tour to South Africa. Following India's elimination from the first round of the 2007 Cricket World Cup, the selectors made multiple changes, and Karthik became an opening batsman in the Test team and regularly played ODIs, batting in the middle order. He made his maiden Test century against Bangladesh and then was India's leading scorer in the Test tour of England, helping his country to win its first series in England in 21 years. However, Karthik suffered a form slump in late 2007 and was dropped from the team, and since then has only made sporadic appearances.

Karthik made his debut at the first-class level in late 2002 against Baroda, playing as a wicket-keeper and batting at No. 8, where he scored 37. He batted throughout the round-robin phase in five matches, scoring 179 runs at an average of 35.8 with a top score of 88* against Uttar Pradesh.[1][3] He took 11 catches, but due to his repeated wicket-keeping errors, he was dropped for the final matches.

It took just one season for Dinesh Karthik to transform from an obscure second-choice wicketkeeper for Tamil Nadu to a serious contender for a berth in the Indian squad. Karthik may be a cherub-faced, shy boy off the field, but he has shown his ability to attack under pressure, and improvise, on it. As a 17-year-old playing his first season in 2002, he showed glimpses of his batting talent but his wicketkeeping wasn't up to scratch, resulting in him being dropped for the Ranji Trophy knockout matches.

He scored his maiden Test ton in the second Test in Dhaka. Soon, though, Dhoni became irreplaceable and he got to play for India only when Dhoni rested. On one such occasion, in the 2008 tour of Sri Lanka, he was ordinary behind the stumps. He did have a good season in domestic cricket in 2008-09, though, keeping in tact his status of second-choice keeper, ahead of Parthiv. He scored three centuries in Ranji Trophy and captained Tamil Nadu through to the semi-final, and followed it up with two centuries in two Duleep Trophy matches. That earned him a comeback to all three Indian squads for the tour of New Zealand.

He is Gemini by his sign. His lucky numbers are 1,5,8 and lucky colours are grren and off white.  You act quickly with unbounded self confidence they will not hesitate to change whatever you dislike hence you are best fitted to deal with any emergency.
