Karthik picked Australia spinner Nathan Lyon and star batter Steve Smith as the most important threats to the Indian crew within the Border Gavaskar Check collection.
In a query and reply session on Twitter, a fan requested Karthik who would be the greatest risk for India within the Check collection.
To this Karthik, who has performed 26 Checks, 94 ODIs, and 60 T20Is for India, replied: “Nathan Lyon and Steve Smith”.

Steve Smith is 4th on the all-time listing of Australian batsmen who’ve scored essentially the most runs in opposition to India in Checks. The previous Australian captain has 1742 runs in 14 Checks vs India, with 8 centuries and a highest rating of 92.
Nathan Lyon in the meantime is the all-time highest wicket taker for Australia in opposition to India in Checks. The off-spinner has up to now taken 94 wickets in 22 Checks, with finest innings figures of 8/50 and as many as seven 5 wicket hauls.
The extremely anticipated four-Check collection between India and Australia will start on February 9 on the Vidarbha Cricket Affiliation Stadium in Nagpur.
India maintain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy having gained the final three collection between the 2 groups, together with their breakthrough triumphs Down Underneath in 2018-19 and 2020-2021.
