Dinesh who stepped down from captaincy in the match against Mumbai Indians, remained as a wicket keeper/batsman for his team Kolkata Knight Riders. Mumbai Indians, effortlessly won the match by chasing down the 148 runs posted by Kolkata with 19 balls to spare. When Varun chakravarty was bowling the 5th ball, Mumbai Indians were needed 37 runs off 37 balls with 8 wickets in hand.
Kolkata Knight Riders desperately needed a couple of quick wickets to give a come back into the game. At that time, Varun, a Tamil speaking leg spinner, bowled a length delivery which went outside the off stump. De Kock who was going well, nicely pushed it to the leg side to keep the strike for the next over.
Dejected Karthick, to express his disappointment towards the particular delivery, said “Enna Mayiru Panthu Ithu” (What kind of a terrible delivery this is) to Varun Chakravarty which was caught on the stump mic. The particular video clip was captured by the fans and is doing rounds in the social media platforms with hilarious captions.

Wicket keepers getting caught in the stump mic while abusing their fellow teammates in a friendly manner, is not something new. Not many days ago, KL Rahul who is captaining Kings 11 Punjab, abused his teammate while calling him to to come a bit front. The cricketer who immediately realized that he would get caught in the stump mic, could be seen hiding his mouth with his hand.
