The way I trained was much better this time around. Credit to the person who trained with me. I’m making a conscious effort to tell myself that I’m not done yet,”- said Karthik in the interview.

When I went in, we needed 12 runs per over and had to keep going. I train for these situations. To stay calm and know whom you can takedown. I’ve tried to play as much white-ball cricket as possible, and prepare as many scenarios as possible. Lots of people have spent time with me in this journey, leading up to the tournament and it’s the work that goes unnoticed mostly,”- he further added.

With the kind of form and the composure he is displaying it is evident that Karthik is definitely ‘not finished yet.’
