WATCH: Emotional Dinesh Karthik consoled by Virat Kohli and other RCB stars after IPL 2024 elimination

It may not have been the ideal ending that Dinesh Karthik and his IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore were hoping for as their campaign in the 2024 edition of the T20 league came to a halt following a defeat to Rajasthan Royals in the Eliminator 1 encounter in Ahmedabad on Wednesday night.

Before the season, the veteran wicketkeeper-batsman had hinted that IPL 2024 could be the last of his career.

RCB did not have a good start to the season, but they managed to handle the situation and made it to the playoffs.

Karthik is one of the few stars who has been a part of every season of the IPL since its inception in 2008. He has played for several top franchises except his domestic team Chennai Super Kings.

He was greeted with loud applause from his RCB teammates and fans present in the stands of the Narendra Modi Stadium after the game against RR.

Karthik once again performed brilliantly for the franchise and ended the campaign with 326 runs in 15 matches. He also called himself a contender for the T20 World Cup, but did not get a chance.

He has certainly etched his name in the competition's history books as one of its finest players, who has adapted his game to suit the needs. Since moving to Kolkata Knight Riders in 2018, he has become a top finisher.
