Twitterati React After An Amazing Comeback Performance By Dinesh Karthik

Dinesh Karthik

After being questioned continuosly for his consecutive woeful performances that repeatedly instigated jeers and catcalls, Dinesh Karthik replied his haters with an incredible performance against back-benchers Kings XI Punjab.

He walked into the crease when KKR was wobbling against Punjab with Morgan out and still 10 overs still had to be played. He started off shakily, trying to gauge the circumstances.

He had to be thankful to Shubman Gill for continuing the momentum while he was getting his eyes in. However, while at one end, Gill started looking sloppy, Karthik pulled up his socks and started freeing his arms.

He played some exquisite strokes to help KKR battle out the dour ambience of the batting unit.

He took the bowlers head on after the departure of Morgan that saw them clawing their way to the top. Unfortunately, the way he started the battle with the Punjab bowlers, he couldn’t finish it on the same note.

Much to his woes, Gill started slowing down further and was gasping for breath and that compounded the pressure on Karthik. Once Gill was out, KKR spiralled further into a tailspin that saw them dipping below expectations.

Before he got out on the last ball, he crafted a gem of a knock that saw him scoring 58 runs from 29 balls with his team garnering 164 runs from their quota of 20 overs.

Twitter did applaud the brilliant knock from the KKR skipper that saw him blowing wind to their sails.
