Got it all wrong: Dinesh Karthik on his 'sexist' remark

| @indiablooms | 05 Jul 2021, 11:57 am

London/IBNS: Indian cricketer Dinesh Karthik has apologised for making an alleged sexist remark while commentating in the second ODI match between Sri Lanka and England.

Karthik had compared cricket bats with "neighbour's wife" during his commentary.

"Batsmen and not liking bats, they go hand in hand. Most of the batters don't seem to like their bats. They either like another person's bat. Bats are like a neighbour's wife. They always feel better," he said.

Karthik has apologised saying he was scolded by his wife and mother.

The former Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) skipper said as quoted by NDTV, " I want to apologise for what happened last game. It's not really what I intended. I just got it all wrong. I apologise to everybody. It's definitely not the right thing to say."

"I am really sorry that it shouldn't happen again. I got a lot of stick from my wife and my mum for saying that."

Karthik was also a part of the commentary team in the World Test Championship Final between India and New Zealand.
