T20 World Cup 2022: After outclassing Pakistan in their opening encounter in Melbourne, the Indian cricket team landed in Sydney for the next match. Led by Rohit Sharma, the men in blue will take the field of Sydney Cricket Ground on Thursday when they face the Netherlands. BCCI shared a video of the team reaching Sydney.
"Thank You for Saving me!"- Dinesh Karthik
India's wicket-keeper batter Dinesh Karthik and Ravichandran Ashwin are seen having a short chat at the airport. Karthik can be seen stating, "Thank You for saving me yesterday, thank you for saving me. Cool and Calm." Notably, Ravichandran Ashwin scored the winning run on the last delivery after Karthik got out on the penultimate ball. While Ashwin held his cool to help India cross the line, it was the brilliance of Virat Kohli that snatched victory from the jaws of defeat. Once staring down at a big defeat, Kohli helped India overcome the arch-rivals with a memorable 82-run knock.
