Royal Challengers Bangalore all-rounder, Shahbaz Ahmed recalled a funny ‘language’ related incident with Dinesh Karthik, which happened in one of the earlier editions of the IPL. Ahmed recalled how playing alongside Indian and foreign players in the popular cricketing tournament had been caused because of a ‘language problem’.

During a podcast, Shahbaz revealed a funny incident that involved Indian wicketkeeper-batter Dinesh Karthik. The 28-year-old all-rounder told Dinesh Sait that while he was batting for the Bangalore-based franchise in one of the earlier editions of the tournament, he talked to Dinesh Karthik in English during a high-pressure chase.

He said, "There was a flow while I was batting with Sherfane. When he got out and DK (Dinesh Karthik) bhai came in and in the same flow I said something in English. DK bhai was laughing and he said, “I am DK, talk to me in Hindi.”

Praising Dinesh Karthik, the Left-arm spinner said, "In a situation like that he was still so calm and that’s why we see performances from him in pressure situations.”
