After the first T20 match between India and Australia in Mohali, a video went viral on social media in which Rohit Sharma was seen holding Dinesh Karthik’s neck in anger. This behavior of Rohit Sharma with the players was strongly condemned by the fans, although it was just a joke. But as soon as Dinesh Karthik won the team in Nagpur T20, Rohit hugged him and won the hearts of the fans. This rain-interrupted match was played for 8 overs. Batting first, Australia had scored 90 runs, India took the score with 6 wickets and 4 balls to spare to level the three-match T20I series 1-1.
Chasing a target of 91 runs in 8 overs, Karthik got a chance to bat when Hardik Pandya was dismissed on the fifth ball of the 7th over. Rohit Sharma tilted the match in India’s favor by hitting a four on the last ball of the 7th over. After this, Dinesh Karthik, giving the finishing touch, hit a six in the direction of backward square leg on the first slow ball of the last over of Daniel Sams and on the very next ball he scored four runs in the direction of deep mid-wicket. Karthik gave the team victory by scoring 10 runs in just 2 balls. Captain Rohit Sharma, who scored an unbeaten 46 at the other end, looked very happy with Karthik’s batting.
As soon as Karthik hit a boundary off Sams’ second ball, Rohit Sharma ran towards him and hugged him. Fans are very fond of the video of this beautiful moment on social media. you also see-
Dinesh Karthik said in the post-match press conference ‘Hey I didn’t take any credit sir, Rohit Sharma did amazing batting. I got two balls of the last and tried what happened. Rohit Sharma has done amazing batting today. With the new ball it is not easy for world class bowlers to play that shot on that wicket. It shows how big a player Rohit Sharma is, not only in Indian cricket but in world cricket. He has a very good ability to play fast bowlers which makes him special.
