It was unbelievable, it was special and to many, it was one of those knocks that leaves your mouth open for a moment. Dinesh Karthik sent in at number 7 and was asked to take India home with 34 needed in just two overs. He scored 29* off 8 balls which included a last ball six and the rest is now history. Team India won the Nidahas Trophy beating Bangladesh by 4 wickets.
Indian team celebrated the win. So did Dinesh Karthik. Now let's see how people on the Twitter world wished him on one of the best cameo-finish under pressure we have seen.
India's Head coach, Ravi Shastri was perhaps the happiest man on the planet, of course after our Knight himself.

Shikhar Dhawan may have missed to click with the bat in the all-important final but didn't forget to capture the moment.
What a game! What a final! What a player! @DineshKarthik you beauty! That was a great shot under pressure to finish things off! Hats off?????????????????? #INDvBAN pic.twitter.com/fxPH8OPRPJ— Shikhar Dhawan (@SDhawan25) March 18, 2018
While Viru Paji was at his humorous best.
Wow! What a win. 2 overs , 34 runs to win the finals , #DineshKarthik pic.twitter.com/lGJgxdMoT7— Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) March 18, 2018
Harsha Bhogle made an interesting point.
Dinesh Karthik made his debut before Dhoni. But he is still only 32 and batting better than ever before. Could well be a wonderful second wind for him if he can keep his form from the last 2 years— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) March 18, 2018
Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar congratulated Team India and appreciated the innings of both Karthik and Rohit.

Former Indian Captain, Sourav Ganguly too expressed the brilliance of DK's innings in a very few words.
