Dinesh Karthik has been named as the replacement of injured Wriddhiman Saha for the third Test against South Africa. The Tamil Nadu wicketkeeper-batsman has been recalled to the side after a layoff of 7 years.
He last played a Test for India in 2010; basically had to sit out because of MS Dhoni’s presence in the side.
Meanwhile, what is making news is the fact that Murali Vijay and Karthik would be playing together. Tweeps can’t keep calm because of the little love triangle.
Apparently, Vijay was the reason behind the failure of Karthik’s marriage to his first wife Nikita.
Nikita is now married to Murali while Karthik is well settled with ace squash player Dipika Pallikal.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to Dinesh Karthik’s Test recall:

Why is Mahatma Gandhi like Dinesh Karthik's father? Because he is father of Dineshan!

If Karthik is keeping and Vijay is at first slip, he will definitely go for the keeper's catch because he has that habit of catching Karthik's "things".

Well I just hope dk won't throw the stumps on Vijay while he fields on the silly point. Virat don't even think of putting murali in slips while dk is keeping the wickets #dineshkarthik #INDvSA #SAvIND

I can't wait to see Vijay and Dinesh Karthik batting together in the 3rd test. What a delight that would be for Vijay's wife who is also Karthik's ex-wife.#INDvSA #Vijay #dineshkarthik #LoveTriangle #Cricket #CricketNews
