MI vs RCB 2024: Rohit teases Karthik during match, “Isko……karna hai”

Rohit teases Karthik

Remember Dinesh Karthik’s explosive batting form right before the 2022 T20 World Cup? Well, it seems history might be repeating itself! During the recent IPL match between Mumbai Indians (MI) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the Wankhede Stadium, a funny exchange between Rohit Sharma and Karthik caught everyone’s attention.

Karthik, playing for RCB, smashed a blistering knock, leaving everyone in awe. As he walked back to the dugout after his innings, the on-field mic picked up Rohit Sharma’s playful banter. Rohit was heard saying, “Isko World Cup ke liye push karna hai (Let him push for a World Cup spot),” sparking laughter and speculation amongst commentators and fans alike. Watch full video:

This isn’t the first time Karthik has found himself in peak form leading up to a World Cup. In 2022, he displayed exceptional batting skills during the IPL season, earning him a place in the Indian T20 World Cup squad. With the 2024 T20 World Cup scheduled for June in the USA and West Indies, is Karthik aiming for another last-minute comeback?

While Rohit’s comment was lighthearted, it does raise an interesting question. Will Karthik manage to replicate his impressive IPL form and convince the selectors of his value in the upcoming World Cup? Only time will tell, but one thing’s for sure – Dinesh Karthik’s batting skills, when on fire, are a force to be reckoned with. Let’s see if the veteran player can pull off another pre-World Cup purple patch and earn his place back in the Indian squad!
