When Dinesh Karthik strode in to bat during the Nidahas Trophy Final against Bangladesh on Sunday, India needed 34 off 12 balls to win. The wicketkeeper-batsman faced eight of those deliveries hitting 29 not out, including a six off the final ball, to take India to a famous win. 

Karthik first took 22 runs off the penultimate over bowled by Rubel Hossain and then hit Soumya Sarkar for a six over the covers off the last ball of the match - with India needing five runs to win - to help India win the trophy and stay unbeaten against Bangladesh in eight T20Is.

Here's the moment that sent Indian fans into a frenzy and triggered wild celebrations in the Indian camp, while the Bangladeshis held their head in hands. 

Watch Karthik's winning six:

India captain Rohit Sharma, who scored 56 off 42 balls to set up India's chase, surprised one and all with his decision of sending Vijay Shankar ahead of Karthik; and the allrounder appeared all at sea during his innings of 17 off 19 balls, putting India's chase in jeopardy. 

But Karthik batted like a man possessed and made up for Shankar's nervous batting with a brilliant show of power-hitting to take India past Bangladesh's 166.
