After making his debut as a wicket keeper batsman way back in 2004, Karthik was hopeful of a long and successful career for India. However, the arrival of Mahendra Singh Dhoni meant his career couldn't really get going as he was in and out from the team, performing admiringly well in the limited opportunities he was getting.

Karthik caught the selectors eye after a string of centuries in the in the 2002/03 season for the Tamil Nadu Under-19 side, who decided to him a go against against England in late 2004. Soon he was handed a Test debut on a minefield of a track in Mumbai  against Australia. A serious of low scores cost him his place to Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Karhik made his entry to the Indian squad, replacing Virender Sehwag on India's tour to England, performing commendably well in the seaming conditions. He ended the Test series as India's highest run-getter, ahead of some big names like Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly, and Sachin Tendulkar, playing a significant role in handing India an elusive away series win.

With Dhoni in the side, it was nearly impossible for Karthik to make it into the side as a wicket keeper and he didn't do himself any favours when he was selected in the team as a keeper batsmen in absence of Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

With India looking for a soild no 4, selectors turned to Karthik and selected him for the Champions Trophy where he performed reasonably well, making important contributions for India throughout the tournament. Characteristically, Karthik once again couldn't capitalized on the opportunity as he lost his place in the side after a drastic dip in form.

Looking at his career, Karthik might feel unsatisfied at times as he was never given enough opportunities to establish himself as a formidable batsman.

Karthik made it into the Indian squad for the upcoming world cup, and with `India looking for a dependable no 4, Karthik could be the man for them.
