Former India cricketer Wasim Jaffer has amassed a distinct fanbase on social media for his humor and on-point witty posts about certain situations in the world of cricket. This time, ahead of the first T20 International between India and South Africa, he has come up with a hilarious meme video to mark the return of veteran India cricketer Dinesh Karthik.
Wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik has got India’s call-up after a long three years since he last performed for the Indian team in the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup. He has been brought back in the 16-man squad for the five-match T20 International series against South Africa starting today at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi.

After Kartik’s return, Wasim Jaffer shares a clip from the 1995 film Karan Arjun Helmed by Shah Rukh Khan and Johnny Lever on his personal Twitter handle, which has taken the web world by storm. In the scene, the Bollywood Badshah can be seen saying, “This place looks familiar to me.” Referring to the dialogue, Jaffer captioned the video saying, “Dinesh Karthik is returning to the Indian dressing room tonight.”
The tweet has created a lot of buzz among internet users, who did not take time to applaud Jaffer for bringing up such a relatable video. While one commenter raised the question, “But who will be the one to play the mother who says ‘Mere Karan Arjun aayenge’?” Another user replied, “Rahul Dravid coach.” The thread has garnered over 1 lakh views and over 9,000 likes on Twitter so far.
During his two decade long career, Dinesh Karthik was never able to cement his place in the Indian team for long. For his poor performance in the 2019 Cricket World Cup, he was dropped from the national team. The former Kolkata Knight Riders captain also could not manage to convince the franchise to retain him in the 2022 Indian Premier League season. But in the latest edition of the IPL, the Bangalore-based franchise bought him out and provided him with a stable place in the RCB team as a finisher, which played a major role in bringing back his fortune.
In his 16 IPL matches this year, the flamboyant middle-order batsman has scored a total of 330 runs at an impressive batting average of 55 and a strike rate of over 180. The performance had made his selection as a finisher in the Indian team inevitable. Indian head coach Rahul Dravid has said, “Dinesh Karthik has been picked to bat in that kind of position (finisher), and see if he can replicate that kind of performance for India as well.”
