Chennai: For India's latest wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik it is a dream come true to become part of the national cricket team for the three-nation tournament in Holland, also involving Pakistan and Australia. The proud youngster said he hoped to play to his potential to cement a permanent place in the Indian team. "I am not worried whether I will get to keep wickets. I am eager to play to my potential right from the first chance and the rest will not bother me," said Karthik. Karthik was doing duty with the India 'A' team in Zimbabwe when he along with left-hand batsman Rohan Gavaskar was included in the senior team. Karthik was not bothered on Ganguly's remarks that Dravid would continue to keep wickets and said that he respected his captains decision. Karthik, who has made giant strides during the last couple of seasons with two hundreds in the Ranji Trophy semi final and final to pull his team out of dire straits, would become the fifth player from Tamil Nadu to don the Indian wicketkeeper's gloves.
