The finals of the World Test Championship 2023 began on Wednesday (June 7). Commentator Dinesh Karthik previewed the pitch before the start of the match at England’s Kennington Oval ground. Fans raised their eyebrows at the pitch. In fact, grass is visible on the pitch, which has brought a lot of funny reactions from the fans. Meanwhile, Karthik also responded to a user’s reaction, which has been widely discussed.
A user made an interesting comment on the photos shared by Dinesh Karthik. He wrote, “He has made a garden in the name of a playground.” Seeing this funny reaction of the fan, even Karthik could not stop himself from replying. Now his reply is going viral on social media.
