Today, the last year (March 18, 2018), Dinesh Karthik's charismatic batting has rocked the cricketing world. R. Colombo The rain of 29 * (6, 4, 6, 0, 2, 4, 1, 6) in 8 balls with Kartik's bat in Premadasa Stadium turned the tables on the hopes of Bangladesh's victory. Kartik, who struck sixes in the last ball in the final, handed a trophy to Team India and India won the thrilling final by 4 wickets.

This was only the second time in cricket history, when a team won the final of a tournament by hitting a six on the last ball. Earlier in 1986, Javed Miandad had done this act against India in Sharjah. And now 32 years later, Kartik showed that the six sixes of Miandad had faded.

In fact, Miandad needed 4 runs to win at that time. In such a situation, he had two options - make a round at the last ball or six! After all, he captured Chetan Sharma for six sixes and took the Australasia Cup. Here, it was the challenge of making 5 runs for Kartik to win the last ball. In such a way, the six was the only 'remedy'. What was then, Kartik grabbed the gentle government ball from an extra cover and took a chance to celebrate with Bangladesh.

Significantly, India needed 34 runs to win on 12 balls. Dinesh Karthik had stepped on the crease. Earlier, Mustafizur Rahman had bowled 18th over, Maiden wicket-keeper. Vijay Shankar could not make any runs in that over. But Rubel Hossain scored 22 runs in the 19th over and the match turned out and Dinesh Karthik returned as the winner of the last ball of the last over.
