“I genuinely believed that I could hit a six,” said Dinesh Karthik as he reflected on refusing a single to non-striker Krunal Pandya in the series-deciding loss to New Zealand in the third T20 International. On Sunday night at Hamilton, with India needing 16 runs off the final over, Karthik refused a single to the big-hitting Krunal Pandya off the third ball of the over, a call that stirred a debate on whether he took the right decision. “I think Krunal and I batted really well from that situation . We were able to bring the match down to a place where the bowlers were under pressure. We backed ourselves to do the job. And at that stage after refusing the single, I genuinely believed that I could hit a six,” Karthik said. “As a middle-order batsman, a lot of times you have to trust your ability to play those big shots under pressure. It is also important to trust your partner at that time. I did not come off on that occasion but those things happen in the game of cricket.”
