Watch: Dinesh Karthik’s Jaw-Dropping Shot Against Bhuvneshwar Kumar in IPL 2024

In a thrilling IPL 2024 clash between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on Monday at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, RCB’s wicket-keeper batter Dinesh Karthik showcased exquisite stroke play during the chase. One memorable shot came in the 18th over, where he elegantly smashed a six-off veteran SRH pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

SRH set a daunting total of 287/3, led by Travis Head’s explosive century (102) supported by Heinrich Klaasen (67), Abhishek Sharma (34), Aiden Markram (32*), and Abdul Samad (37*). Despite RCB’s solid start, with an opening partnership of 80 runs in 6.2 overs, they faltered as key batsmen like Virat Kohli (42) and captain Faf du Plessis (62) departed.

In a challenging situation at 122/5, Karthik played a sensational innings, scoring 83 off 35 balls. However, RCB fell short of the target, unable to capitalize on Karthik’s heroics. Reflecting on the match, du Plessis praised the team’s fighting spirit but acknowledged the bowling needed improvement to tackle such high totals.
