India vs SA 4th T20: Karthik made a funny video on the flight to Rajkot, watch
Team India’s wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik, who made his return to international cricket in the ongoing T20I series against South Africa, shared his antics on the Visakhapatnam to Rajkot flight ahead of the fourth T20 match on Friday (June) on social media. But there was panic. 17). Karthik, who worked as a specialist pundit with broadcasters Star Sports last year, has made another comeback to Team India on the back of a sensational performance for Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 2022.
In the video posted by Karthik on his Twitter handle, it looked strange at first as the airplane was engulfed in smoke and the players seemed unfazed. Just then the Tamil Nadu wicket-keeper appeared on the screen surrounded by applause and cheers as he made a dramatic entry into the smoke. He was seen wearing black sunglasses and walking slowly towards the camera with a wide smile on his face.
While captioning the video, Karthik said, “Get out of roll number 1 viva room and be like…” and laughter broke out on everyone’s face. Those who have given viva during their school or college days will be able to relate to Kartik. During stressful situations, the student who exhausted his viva went back to class in style as he got rid of all the tension.
This is especially the case with the students who rank first in the roll number list as they become the first to enter the exam.

Karthik has also been included in the Indian squad that will take on Ireland on June 26 and June 28 for two T20 Internationals in Dublin. While the current Proteas series has Rishabh Pant as the wicketkeeper, Karthik is likely to keep the wicket for the upcoming series.
“I have been dropped many times and have always wanted to return to the Indian team. She has been my biggest tribe. Be it playing home games, wanting IPL, burning in my stomach in terms of wanting to be back here is something I dream of every day. It has driven me steadily over the past decade or so. I have always found ways to up my game and there were people around me who really helped in that journey,” Kartik was quoted as saying in a video posted on the BCCI’s official website.
Not to be forgotten, Karthik was a part of India’s first T20I which he played and won against South Africa in 2006. 16 years later, he can be seen repeatedly playing in India’s colors in vs South Africa. Speaking on his journey, he said, “I think cricket has completely changed what it was and what it is today. The fact is that I have been a part of it and have seen it grow. It used to be a completely different animal. Representing India means the most to me. I am lucky to be here.”
