For every individual, there would surely be one or two embarrassing incidents in their lives. Either at the workplace or at home, they would have been caught in an awkward position, something which becomes a line a to taunt them. Similarly, in fact, unfortunately, Dinesh Karthik had that experience on the field when he bumped into Sourav Ganguly.
It was during the 2004 Champions Trophy when India were locking horns with Pakistan. It was the moment when India bagged a wicket and were in the huddle. In the meantime, Dinesh Karthik, who was a water boy for that particular game rushed with water bottles and unfortunately bumped into Sourav Ganguly.
Kaun hai re ye pagal – Sourav Ganguly to Dinesh Karthik
The skipper Ganguly, who is carrying a huge pressure, has got no chill, as he thrashed Dinesh Karthik with a few hurtful words. The story was revealed by Dinesh Karthik during a famous show Breakfast With Champions. In between, Yuvraj Singh, who was one of the witnesses of that particular incident, revealed the actual words of Sourav Ganguly.
As per Karthik, Ganguly’s words were, “Ye kaun hai, kaha kaha se pakad ke laate ho?”. But former India cricketer Yuvraj Singh, who was part of the game, revealed what exactly Ganguly said.
Yuvraj wrote, “dada exact words! Kaun hai re ye pagal ! kahan se pakad ke Latien hai in the middle of India vs Pak tense game! @DineshKarthik your hilarious @ImRo45.”

All in all, it ended up in a funny way. During the interview, Rohit Sharma was present alongside Dinesh Karthik, who actually, brought this question to the table to pull the leg of Dinesh Karthik.
However, it wasn’t a memorable match for India, as Pakistan won the game with 3 wickets in hand. It was a tough game to swallow for Ganguly, as he was dismissed on a duck while Yuvraj Singh is the other player to score a duck.
