What Dinesh Karthik did on Sunday night made Indian fans forget that a boring Monday morning is waiting for them. No wonder if many have dreamed about it in the night as well.
Bangladesh, standing on the verge of victory, were stunned when Karthik snatched away the win with a six on the last delivery. India lifted the Nidahas Trophy 2018 after thrashing Bangladesh by 4 wickets.
R. Premadasa Stadium erupted with joy after Soumya Sarkar was spanked for a six over extra cover.
India skipper Virat Kohli, who was rested from the Nidahas Trophy, lauded Karthik and the Indian team on Twitter after a thriller win. Kohli praised his teammates for a "complete team performance" and lauded Karthik for his special knock.
"More What a game of cricket last night, Complete team performance! Big up boys!!! ????????Well done DK @DineshKarthik ???? @BCCI #NidahasTrophy2018 #INDvsBAN," wrote Virat.
Not only Karthik, stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul stitched together a crucial 51-run stand to keep India in the chase after early shocks. Rohit scored another half century in the final. But Karthik was the first choice for the Man of the Match award after his impactful cameo.
