·1-min read

India cricketer Dinesh Karthik's stint in the commentary box during the second day of the World Test Championship (WTC) final between India and New Zealand saw him pull a fast one on fellow commentator and former England skipper Nasser Hussain, which left his fans well entertained.

Hussain was all praise for India cricketer Rohit Sharma's pull shots on Day 2 of the WTC final on Saturday as he commented, "Rohit is a great puller of the short ball. Uses his feet well against spin. Shows positive intent."

Just when Hussain was done with his analysis, Karthik replied: "Yes, exactly the opposite of you".
