WATCH: Dinesh Karthik encourages Ravichandran Ashwin from behind the stumps in their mother tongue

Posted On / /

On Day 1 of the first Test in Birmingham while the Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin was weaving his magic with the leather, wicket-keeper Dinesh Karthik helped him out from behind the stumps.

Both the cricketers plays for Tamil Nadu at the domestic circuit and Karthik resorted to speak in Tamil- their mother tongue in order to cheer up Ashwin.

During England’s 17th and Ashwin’s sixth over, Karthik motivated him and spoke in Tamil, which roughly translates to “Well bowled mate, bowl the same line and length in the next deliveries and keep up the good work”.

Murali Vijay, who was placed at the short-leg too shared a smile after listing to Karthik’s words.

Here’s the video:
