Dinesh Karthik Reveals The Story Of Rohit Sharma’s First Half-Century In International Cricket

India’s veteran wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik revealed that Rohit Sharma scored his maiden international half-century for the national team with the bat of Dinesh Karthik. Karthik had recalled the T20 World Cup match between India and South Africa at Kingsmead in Durban.

Karthik was not sure how his bat was because he got out a golden duck. Proteas pace bowler Shaun Pollock dismissed Dinesh Karthik in the fifth over of that match. Then Rohit Sharma took his bat, and he scored an unbeaten half-century.

Hit Man took the help of seven fours and two sixes and reached the fifty-run mark in just 40 balls. Rohit had also shared a partnership of 85 runs with Skipper MS Dhoni. However, Mahi Bhai scored a vital 45 from 33 balls in that encounter, and he was run out.

Gaurav Kapoor hosted the experienced Tamil Nadu and India wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Kartik on Breakfast with the Champions. We can watch all the episodes of this online show on Youtube.com.

Here Dinesh Karthik revealed that Rohit Sharma’s first international half-century was with his bat, and he is very proud of that fact. Dinesh Karthik also said that he batted with it, and he told Rohit this bat crap, and that is why he got out on zero.

But the response from Rohit was if you do not like this bat, then give it to me. Then Rohit went on to slam his maiden T20 half-century in that match. That knock of Rohit Sharma helped India to beat South Africa in a must-win game. Later, the wonderful bowling effort from RP Singh and co pushed the hosts of World T20 2007, South Africa, out of that tournament.
