The battle for spots on the Indian cricket team is still as intense as ever. The senior team's doors are constantly being approached by newcomers, despite the number of games the Indian team plays these days. Veteran wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik has urged the team management to promote Deepak Hooda higher in the batting order and give the uncapped Jitesh Sharma an opportunity at No. 6 as Team India continues to struggle with the issue of finding a "finisher" in T20I cricket.

In the Indian Premier League, Hooda has excelled, particularly at No. 3 and No. At No. 4, he continues to face finishing challenges for the Indian team. Occasionally, 6 or even lower. Karhik feels the team should give him a chance to prove himself at No. 1 because he is not pleased with the all-rounder's role. 3 before the decision to let him go is made.

"At ages 5, 6, and 7, especially at 6 and 7, being consistent is the hardest thing to do. Therefore, despite having achieved great success at No. 3 because they believe for some reason, he can perform the duties there. 6 and 7. I think he'll face a lot of difficulties because of this. He has batted through the middle at No. 1 throughout his IPL career, with the exception of Lucknow Super Giants. has a low success rate, at around 5 or 6. He considers himself to be a top-order batter. As soon as he left Baroda for Rajasthan, he found himself again. The powerplay is his favorite time to bat. He enjoys participating in the game. However, he currently performed admirably at No. in the recently concluded Sri Lanka series. In a Cricbuzz conversation with Harsha Bhogle, Karthik stated that the number 6 was a great opportunity for him.

Regarding the No. Youngster Jitesh Sharma would value the chance to play at the No. 6, according to Karthik, who is adamant about this. Due to his preparation, he earned the No. 6 spot.

"A homegrown No. 1 is Jitesh Sharma. 6 batters. He would likely take more pleasure in the situation because he likes to bat there. Both Her and he have practiced batting there. However, I can't imagine him playing in this series. Now it's Deepak Hooda's turn. However, I do believe that if he is under pressure, they should give him that chance at No. 3 before they choose to move on from him," Karthik suggested.
