My Dad Took Me For The First Time To Watch A Test Match – Dinesh Karthik

While commentating for Star Sports during Day 3 of the fourth Border-Gavaskar Trophy Test in Ahmedabad, Dinesh Karthik recalled a conversation he had with a fellow fan about Sachin Tendulkar during a Test match in Chennai in 1998.

“I know vividly. In 1998, my dad took me for the first time to watch a Test match, India vs Australia. I had come to watch one batsman, Sachin Tendulkar. The person sitting next to me, stranger in the crowd said, ‘you will enjoy to watch Sachin Tendulkar bat. But also don’t forget his swift running between the wickets,” Karthik said.

“He runs like a rat who runs after the cheese, but the only difference being he doesn’t get trapped’. I remember these lines very vividly. Sachin got 155. What an innings that was, I’ll never forget. So many sixes, one of them came right where we were sitting. We were sitting between long-on and deep midwicket. Great memories,” he added.
