Indian cricket fans are excited to see their favorite stars in action. India host a home test match nearly a year after the played Sri Lanka at home last year. One debut that is confirmed to happen is that of Dinesh Karthik. The 37-year-old is getting ready to hop on behind the microphone in his debut stint as commentator at home. Just before the start of the series, Dinesh Karthik was active on social media engaging with his fans, when he had to face banter from a fan.
Fan trolls Dinesh Karthik –
RCB wicket keeper and batter is pretty active on social media. The 37 year old was on Twitter interacting with his fans. The 37 year old wanted to have a little bit of fun and wrote “Its been a long time, let’s do an #ASKDK Lets go”. One fan though wasn’t waiting to miss the chance to troll the 37 year old.
The fan in question put up a screenshot of Karthik’s 6 runs off 25 in the semi finals against New Zealand during the 2019 ICC world cup. The fan wrote “One word about your Goated innings in SF #ASKDK”
Dinesh Karthik’s hilarious reply –
Once the tweet was noticed by Dinesh Karthik, the veteran Indian stumper was quick to reply. Karthik replied to the fan “Delete this right now” with an embarrassed facepalm emoji. In the game, Dinesh Karthik was sent in ahead of MS Dhoni as India slid to 5/3. Karthik couldn’t do justice with the bat as India lost the semi finals in heartbreaking fashion and crashed out of the finals as MS Dhoni made a teary eyed exit.

Dinesh Karthik’s India journey all but over –
Speaking of Dinesh Karthik’s career with the Indian team, the dream is all but over. Karthik was part of the 2022 T20 squad which made the semis of the tournament. England beat Rohit Sharma and his men by ten wickets and also went on to claim the title. Karthik’s performance wasn’t as satisfactory despite him showing good form leading up to the tournament. Karthik will now be seen playing the IPL for RCB as well commentating during the 4 match test series.
