Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik apologized for his remarks during the second ODI on Thursday (July 1). He is currently commenting on duties during the England-Sri Lanka white ball series and has tried to explain how innings are never happy with their own bats, citing an example of how a neighbor always feels better.

It was an interesting step by the cricketer who is still active in domestic cricket and the Indian Premier League (IPL). He impressed the fans and fellow experts with his jovial and charming approach.

During the second ODI between England and Sri Lanka, he made a remark on the air that did not fit well with the fellow experts and the supporters. Karthik drew parallels between cricket batsmen and the ‘wife of the neighbors’ while commenting on the game.
‘Batsmen do not like bats, but go hand in hand. Most batsmen do not like their bats. They either like someone else’s bat. Bats are like a neighbor. They always feel better, ”Said Dinesh Karthik during the 2nd ODI.
