“After thinking about it for a while, I’ve decided to stop playing cricket for a team. I’m officially retiring and moving on to face new challenges,” Karthik said.

Regarding RCB, they had a tough time, losing six games in a row. But they bounced back by winning six games. They beat CSK in their final league match at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru to make it to the playoffs.
