Kolkata Knight Riders assistant coach Simon Katich is confident that their captain Dinesh Karthik will once again excel in his designated finisher’s role, making a case for his selection in India’s World Cup squad.

Karthik, who didn’t play the one-dayers against Australia, is back in the mix after Rishabh Pant’s failure to grab the chance.

Asked about his batting position, Katich dropped a hint that the KKR skipper would use the Indian Premier League to showcase his skill set in pressure games.
