Murali Kartik, who is now seen in a new role post-retirement, made a goof up while interviewing Shai Hope after the second ODI between India and West Indies.
The game ended in a tie and it was Hope who batted till the end to ensure West Indies stays alive in the game. Kartik talked about Hope's innings of unbeaten 123 runs at the end of the game.
But the Cricketer-turned-commentator became a butt of a joke on Twitter after he referred Hope as Shimron Hetmyer before the interview.
Kartik corrected himself but it was too late till then. Unfortunate for the former Indian cricketer, Twitter had already noted his mistake and were in splits after this silly error.
While some asked Kartik to do his homework before he joins the commentary panel, others were just enjoying his mistake which turned him into a joke.
Here is how Twitter reacted:
First the tie and then Murali Kartik calls Shai Hope 'Shimron Hetmyer' in the post-match flash interview. Wretched night for the West Indies. #INDvsWI— Malay Desai (@MalayD) October 24, 2018
