Rohit Sharma’s old chat with Dinesh Karthik goes viral after heroic performance vs SA

Dinesh Karthik, the seasoned Indian wicket-keeper batsman, has made a fairytale comeback to international cricket after an almost three-year absence. He last appeared in an international match against New Zealand in the 2019 World Cup semi-finals, which India eventually lost. Karthik has been absent from international cricket since then. He was unfortunate to get out that night, it was a blinder of a catch from Jimmy Neesham. He was the one who was looking to resurrect the Indian innings, unfortunately losing his wicket to Matt Hendry.

After a poor performance with the bat at Kolkata Knight Riders, he gave up the captaincy to Eoin Morgan in IPL 2021. He was not retained by Kolkata Knight Riders before the mega auction of IPL 2022. In the mega auction he was bought by Royal Challengers Bangalore, who fought with CSK in the auction to bag him.

In IPL 2022, RCB finished third in the season. Dinesh Karthik played as a finisher for RCB this year. Dinesh Karthik’s performance with the bat was one of the main reasons for RCB’s qualification to the playoffs which eventually got him a place at the Indian squad for the T20 series against the Proteas.

In the 4th T20I, Dinesh Karthik played a match winning knock with his bat scoring 55 runs off 27 balls when the team was struggling for momentum. After this knock his old chat with Rohit Sharma goes viral on the internet. Dinesh Karthik had posted a picture captioning it “Just me being me”. To which Rohit Sharma had replied, “You still have some cricket left. FYI!”. Karthik replied, “Don’t ever doubt that sham”. This happened when India was touring England last summer and Dinesh Karthik was working as a commentator on Sky Sports.

India will play against South Africa in the series decider match at Bengaluru tonight. All eyes will be on Indian captain Rishabh Pant with the bat. All Indian fans are hoping for fireworks with the bat from Rishabh Pant and win the series 3-2.
