Keep or Field..

Dinesh Kaarthick is a very fine young cricketer and a wholehearted team man. His batting in the second innings at Durban was a revelation for both teams because he showed that if you ignored the pitch, it could indeed be ignored. Smith and Pollock were later to do the same and take the game away from India. In the first innings he batted four hours and showed he had a wise head, not just the excitable, jack-in-the-box one we had seen all along. And I loved the way he fielded anywhere on the ground.

It is rare for a wicketkeeper to possess a good throwing arm and yet he ran out a man from long off and would be a live-wire inside the circle in a limited overs game. India must find room for both, him and Dhoni, and a World Cup squad would be incomplete without either.

Kaarthick has done enough in SA to suggest that he deserves a world-cup spot. If the team does field both Dhoni and Kaarthick, I would like to see Kaarthick keep wickets and let Dhoni man the outfield. With due respect to Dhoni's keeping skills (he hasn't really missed much lately behind the wickets), Kaarthick is much more acrobatic and definitely a better bet when it comes to standing up to Kumble.
