India spinner R Ashwin grabbed four wickets on the first day of the first Test match against England at Edgbaston on Wednesday. While Ashwin’s performance was hailed by Indian cricket fans, it was wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik who caught the attention online.
The video of Karthik encouraging Ashwin in Tamil triggered a lot of reactions from fans. While many were quite amused by the way Karthik went on to encourage Ashwin, some felt that the wicketkeeper went a little overboard. Here are some of the reactions that trended on social media:

Dinesh Karthik talking in Tamil to encourage Ashwin, will bamboozle every one, especially their own teammates.
