This tweet from Karthik relates back to an incident which took place back in the year 2018 in the Nidahas trophy final match between India and Bangladesh. India had defeated Bangladesh to lift the trophy against the odds as Bangladesh were totally outplayed to everyone’s surprise.
Dinesh Karthik was the hero for India as he had snatched victory from the jaws of defeat for his side. The right hander smashed a 6 with 5 needed off the last ball to seal the win for India. In this manner, India were able to curb Bangladesh’s hopes of performing the naagin celebration which was being done by several players of their team during that period in order to mock their opposition team.
