Dinesh Karthik's international career started about 18 years ago today. In 2004, he wore an Indian jersey for the first time. The current President of the Indian Cricket Board, Sourav Ganguly was then captain of the Indian team. At the beginning of his career, Karthik made Sourav angry.

But what did Karthik do? The wicketkeeper-batsman himself said this in an interview. Karthik did such a thing on the field that Sourav got angry. Former captain Ganguly even became angry and made harsh remarks on him.

Karthik did not get a place in India's first XI in the match against Pakistan in the ICC Champions Trophy. However, he entered the field with water for his teammates during the game. At this time, he ran in a hurry to fetch water for his teammates. Karthik fell on Sourav's body. That is why Saurabh got angry.

Recalling that day, Karthik said, "I was an extra player in that match. I was taking water to the field for my teammates. I was running to reach the water quickly. I fell on Dada (Sourav) while running. That's when Dada screamed in annoyance." What did Sourav say when he got angry?

Karthik said, Dada (Sourav) shouted, "Where do you get these cricketers from? Who is it!" Yuvraj Singh joked about Karthik's reply. The former all-rounder wrote in a tweet, "Dada (Sourav) actually said, who the crazy is this! Where did you get from? "

The Indian team was under some pressure in that match against arch-rivals Pakistan. However, Karthik's claim that his ridiculous stunt has helped to ease the pressure in the Indian dressing room. Karthik, who made such a splash at the beginning of his career, is still in the Indian team. He also won the 'player of the match' award in the last match (T20). The batsman is also in the plans of the Indian team for the upcoming T20 World Cup.
