Do You Know Dinesh Karthik’s Mother-In-Law Was A Talented Indian Cricketer?

Dinesh Karthik

Celebrated Indian wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik is married to renowned squash player Dipika Pallikal. Karthik’s mother-in-law Susan Itticieria was a renowned cricketer and donned the India jersey in the 1970s.

We often talk about the father-son duo like Yograj Singh and Yuvraj Singh and Sunil and Rohan Gavaskar. But how many knew about this unique combination.

Susan Itticheria is a former Test and One Day International cricketer who represented India during the 1970s. She played as many as seven Test matches and two One Day Internationals and has taken an aggregate of eight wickets in her career.

Her last international game was in 1978 when India hosted Australia. Susan has also represented Tamil Nadu in the domestic circuit.

Meanwhile, Dinesh Karthik was last seen in action during the recently concluded Vijay Hazare Trophy where he plied his trade for Tamil Nadu.

He was not been retained by his former franchise Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the IPL and will enter the IPL 2022 mega auction.


“He is a Bit Like Ravichandran Ashwin” –  Dinesh Karthik on Prasidh Krishna

Karthik has praised fast bowler Prasidh Krishna saying he has a similar mindset to that of India offspinner Ravichandran Ashwin. Krishna made his India debut last year and has since taken nine wickets in four ODIs.

“Prasidh… is a lovely guy but he has a bit of a free spirit to his bowling. He has his own mind; he is a bit like Ashwin if I might say. He has his own mind, own ways to think. That sometimes gets the best of batsmen out but sometimes also makes him go for runs,” Karthik told Cricbuzz.

He has been added to India’s squad for the limited-overs series against West Indies and will wait for an opportunity in the absence of Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami.
