    Sometimes, a player becomes synonymous with a single performance. In Arun Karthik’s case, it was the last-ball six he slammed for Royal Challengers Bangalore against South Australian Redbacks in the 2011 Champions League T20. The whack off Daniel Christian took RCB to the semifinal, and ensured that a grateful team management keeps him on their rolls even if they don’t field him too often. Unlike some other young domestic players who languish in the sidelines and only make up the numbers in the Indian Premier League though, Karthik is worth a lot more. He is a rather elegant top-order batting option for his state team of Tamil Nadu, bowls a spot of leg-spin and fills in as a wicketkeeper for RCB when one of the regulars need to be left out to make up the foreigner-local balance. A useful man to have in the team – first for Chennai Super Kings and then with RCB.
