Dinesh Karthik made his debut before Dhoni. But he is still only 32 and batting better than ever before. Could well be a wonderful second wind for him if he can keep his form from the last 2 years

Cover drive six to win the game with 5 needed is hard to replicate. Don’t see that happening again. #DineshKarthik

What an unbelievable knock from @DineshKarthik last night, knowing him well this was something that he always wanted to do and it came through on the finals night. 🙌

Jaydev Undakat's fourth over was not bowled by Jaydev Unadkat. It went for just three runs.#INDvsBAN

The way broadcasters show ad these days. No doubt our upcoming generation will remember products name better than cricketer's name.
