Dinesh Karthik's 58* off 44 balls didn't get the reaction he would have hoped for
#GLvKXIP it seems DK played for his 50 only not for winning match.. Not a single six from his bat so far until over 18.— Sathish Kumar K M (@sathishkmr53) April 23, 2017
But DK wasn't the only one to be bashed
Just a difference of 118 runs in the margin of victory!
