New Delhi: The Gujarat Lions wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik is one of the most talented batsmen around, and he can sure play insane-looking but innovative shots too. We have witnessed one such shot two weeks ago, and today, he did it again.

Karthik, 31, played the shot off the last bowl of the 17th over, bowled by Sandeep Sharma. The Kings XI Punjab pacer produced a yorker, but DK was already determined to play a switch hit, and he did, by hitting a four.

The right-handed batsman waited for the delivery akin to the one employed by Guran in Bollywood blockbuster 'Lagaan', then played towards third man area. A four for the effort.
