After Patel’s success, the Blue Army needed to put pressure on the opposition team. Chahal had also done this work. He lbw Smith, but Karthik posted behind the wicket did not appeal for lbw. However, like Karthik, other players were also guilty. No player appealed against Smith. The result was that he remained not out and managed to play an important innings of 35 runs.
Karthik did not make a mistake here. He did not appeal for out despite being hit twice in Umesh Yadav’s over. After committing three mistakes one after the other, Rohit lost himself in the field. During this, he was seen holding Karthik’s neck in a funny tone. During this video, it is becoming increasingly viral on social media.
Talking about Karthik’s batting performance in the first T20 match, he failed to show any special charisma with the bat and was dismissed for just six runs in five balls. Nathan Ellis showed the way to the pavilion while doing LBW to Karthik.
