The post was well-received by fans with everyone congratulating the couple. Karthik’s wife Dipika is an Indian professional squash player. She is also the first Indian to get into the top 10 of the official women’s squash world rankings. She is also a multiple Asian Games and Commonwealth Games medal-winning athlete. 

Karthik was last seen in action in the recently-concluded Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 season with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).

The Eoin Morgan-led franchise finished in fourth position during the league phase in dramatic manner and then defeated Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Eliminator by four wickets.

KKR followed it up with a three-wicket victory against Delhi Capitals (DC) in Qualifier 2. Then, Kolkata missed out on the IPL 2021 title as they lost to MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by 27 runs.

Despite KKR’s excellent season, Karthik wasn’t in his best form during the IPL 2021 campaign. In 17 matches, he registered 223 runs. He also failed to bag a ton or half-century.
