How crucial is Karthik to this GL line-up? With all the star-studded batsmen, he certainly goes unnoticed. On a track that was slow and with the ball not coming on, he looked the most comfortable. Smith went for nought, leaving McCullum and Raina to do the repair work. The former played a measured innings and got to his fifty.
