Dinesh Karthik had a good opportunity to show his worth in the team in the recently concluded Australia-New Zealand tour. But unfortunately he had a poor outing, In two ODIs against New Zealand Karthik scored 38 runs and was out for a duck in one match which India lost. And in 3 ODIs against Australia, he scored just 37 runs.
