Dinesh Karthik, the Indian cricketer and commentator, has once again amused the fans with his witty post on Twitter. Karthik is currently in the UK for The Hundred 2023 and shared a video of him interviewing Pakistan fast bowler Shaheen Afridi and England legend Stuart Broad. In the video, Karthik was standing on a platform to match the height of the two towering cricketers over six feet tall.
A similar photo of Ben Duckett standing among Stuart Broad and Zak Crawley during the Ashes had gone viral, with many memes. Even England’s Barmy Army had chimed in and trolled their player. Duckett himself had seen the funny side of the incident and posted the clip with a caption, “might stand somewhere else this time."
Now Dinesh Karthik has experienced a similar feeling while interviewing lanky pacers Stuart Broad and Shaheen Shah Afridi. Karthik captioned the video with "I feel you @BenDuckett1 #heightissues".
The trio were discussing Afridi's performance as he made a remarkable start to his Hundred campaign as he picked up the wickets of Phil Salt and Laurie Evans off successive balls to help Welsh Fire rack up a nine-run victory in their first game. Shaheen also talked about how bowling long spells in test cricket has made bowling in the shorter formats very easy.
