WATCH : Rohit Sharma hilariously trolls Dinesh Karthik with witty World Cup jibe


After winning the toss and electing to bowl first, the home team gained momentum by dismissing Will Jacks and Virat Kohli early on during the powerplay. Despite this setback, RCB’s Faf du Plessis and Rajat Patidar formed a formidable partnership, adding 82 runs and propelling their team to 93/2 in 11 overs.

Mumbai’s bowlers struck back, however, removing Patidar and Glenn Maxwell, disrupting RCB’s middle order. With Faf contributing a stylish 61 off 40 balls, all eyes turned to Dinesh Karthik to bolster RCB’s total.

Karthik, the seasoned wicketkeeper, showcased his prowess by smashing 14 runs in the 18th over and an impressive 19 runs in the final over. In the midst of Karthik’s onslaught, a light-hearted moment unfolded between him and Rohit Sharma.

As Karthik continued his aggressive batting, Rohit, stationed at first slip, sauntered towards the batsman and jovially teased him about his potential inclusion in the World Cup squad. Rohit humorously remarked to Karthik, “World cup khelna hai, world cup khelna hai” (you have to play the World Cup), alluding to the upcoming T20 World Cup scheduled to commence on June 4th.

The Twitter community swiftly caught wind of Rohit’s amusing comment and flooded social media platforms with discussions and reactions.
