Ind Vs Aus Rohit Fires On Dinesh Karthik
Australia beat India by four wickets in the first T20I at Mohali on Tuesday. Australia upset India’s hopes of a series win at home. India scored 208 runs but could not save the match as the Australian batsmen crushed the Indian bowlers. Meanwhile, Team India captain Rohit Sharma also looked confused during this match. He looked very angry with wicket keeper Dinesh Karthik. Now let’s find out why.
India batted first. Hardik Pandya scored an unbeaten 71 runs. In his innings, Pandya faced 30 balls and hit seven fours and five sixes. KL Rahul scored 55 runs in 35 balls with the help of four fours and three sixes. On behalf of Australia, Cameron Green scored 61 runs off 30 balls and Matthew Wade scored 45 runs to win the team.

Rohit held Karthik’s jaw and washed it.
Indian bowlers are stealing runs tremendously. India need a wicket in such conditions. Green was dismissed by Akshar Patel in the 11th over, while Rohit brought in Umesh Yadav to bowl. Steve Smith caught the third ball of Umesh’s over. Karthik took this catch. But as the umpire did not give out, the team conducted a review and Smith was out. This was followed by the same thing with Glenn Maxwell on the last ball of the same over. But even this time the umpire did not give out. Rohit took the review. Maxwell was found in it. Karthik did not appeal much during these two reviews. In this regard, Rohit showed fear of Karthik. He grabbed his neck and jaw and pressed him hard. A similar funny incident took place when Team India took a review of Maxwell’s case. However, Dinesh Karthik did not respond properly in both these matters, to which Rohit firmly pressed his jaw saying, if so, how?
