“In the earlier days, Mahi bhai taught me one thing. I asked him a very simple thing like ‘How do you get away from pressure and everything?’ And he gave me a very simple piece of advice. It was like, ‘Stop thinking what your score is, start thinking what your team needs.’ That lesson stuck in my mind and it helped me become the player I have become. Whatever situation I go into, I assess it and play accordingly.”
Karthik played such an innings in the match which he remembered earlier Avesh Khan India on Friday gave a “perfect birthday gift” to his father as South Africa leveled the five-match series 2-2.
