Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) star Dinesh Karthik was on a carnage as he smashed Mumbai Indians (MI) for an impressive unbeaten 53 off just 23 balls. The wicketkeeper-batsman led RCB’s fightback in the death with 4 sixes and 5 boundaries, guiding RCB to 196/8 in 20 overs.

Dinesh Karthik went hammers and tongs against MI leaving everyone stunned including MI star Rohit Sharma. The India captain could not help but praised Karthik and teased him from the first slip. Known for hilarious chatter on the stump pic, Rohit Sharma was caught cracking a joke as Dinesh unleashed carnage on MI bowlers.

Although Bumrah’s startling five-wicket haul helped MI win the match, it was Dinesh Karthik who stole the show with his boundaries and sixes. The 38-year-old star left everyone awestruck with four stylish boundaries into the third man region in a single over.

Impressed with his batting, Rohit was heard saying, “World Cup ke selection ke liye push karna hai isko, shabash. Dimag mein chal raha hai iske World Cup. Shabash DK, World Cup khelna hai.”

The hilarious banter between Dinesh Karthik and Rohit Sharma was caught in the stump mic and has gone viral on social media. With blistering finish and a knock to always remember, DK was ruthless at the Wankhede stadium.

He produced just the kind of knock RCB needed towards the end of the innings. “Dinesh Karthik played really well. He played a brilliant knock,” said MI star Jasprit Bumrah, who was super impressed with DK’s batting.
