Fans get to see a lot of action on the television and from the stands of a cricket field, but they still miss out on a lot happening in the middle since they could not actually hear the banter that goes on and the hilarious conversations that take place among players.
Indian wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik recently recalled an interesting incident from the 2004 Champions Trophy as he was involved in an accident with Sourav Ganguly, the captain at that time.
Karthik narrated that he ran towards the players huddle during the drinks break since he was not playing in that game against Pakistan, but he failed to stop at the right moment which eventually led to a collision with the skipper.
Former Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh was playing that game and he came forward with the exact words of Ganguly which were quite hilarious. The captain said ‘Kaun hai re ye pagal! kahan se pakad ke latien hai?’ which translates to ‘Who is this mad man? Where do they bring such people from?’
