“I remember the conversation you were having when you were not in the scheme of things. A lot of people counted you out,” Pandya told Karthik during the chat.
“You told me then that my goal is to play for India again and the goal is to play this World Cup, I am going to give it my everything, and seeing you achieve that is very inspirational. A lot of people are going to learn new things. Well done my brother, very proud of you,” Pandya added.
