Karnataka’s strong enough batting line-up comprising the likes of KL Rahul and Karun Nair collapsed spectacularly for 88 in the quarter-final clash against Tamil Nadu in the 2016/17 Ranji Trophy. Both Rahul and Nair, who were splendid in the final Test against England at Chennai, failed in their domestic exam as they managed to score 14 and 4 respectively.
India all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin on twitter trolled the batting performance of Karnataka batsmen, including KL Rahul. He also referred to Karun as his brother and promised to connect with him after the game. He also joked about the fact that Karnataka lost the toss against his side Tamil Nadu.
