India has been able to equalise the tough series against the South Africans which now stands at 2-2 and all compliments are sent to two stars of team India – Avesh Khan and Dinesh Karthik.
Hardik Pandya, India’s star all-rounder, has praised Dinesh Karthik’s comeback from nothingness, calling him an inspiration to many “in and outside the team”. In the fourth T20 International in Rajkot on Friday, the 37-year old DK smashed his maiden T20I fifty to help the hosts beat South Africa by 82 runs.
The two talents have fired in the business they are expected to be best at. Dinesh Karthik recently had a questionnaire session with Hardik Pandya and while asking each other some tactical questions.
During the video interview with Karthik (BCCI has posted on its website), Hardik recalled past encounters with the 37-year old, who is having a dream run with the bat now.
“I need to tell you this, genuinely I want to tell you this, you have given a lot of inspiration to many guys in their life.
“I remember the conversation you were having when you were not in the scheme of things, a lot of people counted you out,” Hardik told Karthik during the interview.
India was failing in the middle order and with 4 quick wickets gone, India was in matching trouble when Hardik Pandya and Dinesh Karthik decided to gear up.
Hardik too played a special knock of 46 runs but Dinesh Karthik’s shot has a special place in everyone’s heart as he seemed to have come out to the ground to make history tonight.
