'You taught me to say...': Dinesh Karthik in reply to Ravi Shastri's 'easy game...' remark

Team India, steered by skipper Rohit Sharma's ruthless batting, levelled the three-match T20I series against Australia clinching a six-wicket victory over the yellow brigade in the second encounter in Nagpur Friday.

Chasing a target of 91 in the match which was reduced to eight overs due to the delay caused by rains, India scored 92/4 in 7.2 overs, thanks to Rohit's unbeaten 46 off 20 balls.

Playing a cameo, wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik, who has earned fame due to his finishing touches, wrapped up the match in favour of India in the first two balls of the last over where they needed nine runs.

Karthik straightaway went for a six and then a four in the first two balls to finish things off.

After the match, former Indian head coach and cricket commentator, Ravi Shastri, told Karthik in the post-match interview, "Easy game, DK. 2 balls, piece of cake. 6, 4, thank you very much."

In an epic reply, the senior wicketkeeper-batsman said, "You are the one who taught me to say, ‘it’s never an easy game', Ravi bhai! Don't go back on that, please. It's a hard game, you know how it is!"

India will take on Australia in the series-decider in Hyderabad Sunday evening.
