This is not the first time Dinesh using the language to interact with his teammates. During International matches, while playing with Tamil nadu players like Ashwin, Dinesh made the headlines for giving him suggestions and appreciations in Tamil. His one liners behind the stumps during the last season has a separate fan base as well. Not only Karthik, even Dhoni and other Indian wicket keepers would use their respective regional languages to prevent their foreign opponents understanding their game strategies.
