Dinesh Karthik walked in to bat when Indian fans had lost all hope. With 34 needed from the final 12 balls, the Bangladeshis wouldn't be judged for dreaming about how they'd celebrate the night. But DK had other plans.

Hitting the first ball he faced for six, Karthik went on to play the innings of a lifetime. The keeper-bat went on to blast 29 runs from eight balls to steer his team to victory. India needed five of the last ball, and DK managed to get a maximum. Team India won the 2018 Nidahas Trophy, and Dinesh Karthik earned a permanent spot in the hearts of millions of fans.
