India is currently fighting against the second wave of COVID-19 which has wrecked havoc in the country. The virus is so contagious that the daily cases count crossed 4 lakh in India and the fatality rate is also scary at the moment. However, vaccine has come as a relief for many. Though there is shortage of it at the moment, things are certainly improving and more than 10% population of the country has already received one vaccine dose.
On the other hand, close to 3% people have been completely vaccinated. Even the cricketers are getting their first dose of vaccination as and when possible. The Indian cricketers including Smriti Mandhana, Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane among others have already done the needful. And Dinesh Karthik was also added to the list on Tuesday as he received his first vaccine dose.
Like everyone, Karthik posted a picture of him getting the vaccine shot and he had worn a black t-shirt and the joggers. Australia cricketer Chris Lynn came across his tweet and decided to pull his leg in response. The Aussie took a hilarious dig at his former KKR captain stating that he should’ve at least worn proper pants instead of the joggers. “Could have at least worn pants,” Lynn’s reply read.
Here’s the tweet and reply:

Dinesh Karthik and Chris Lynn were teammates at KKR
Interestingly, Dinesh Karthik and Chris Lynn have shared the dressing room before while playing for the Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Karthik came into the KKR squad during the IPL 2018 auction and was appointed the skipper of the side and Lynn played a couple of years under his captaincy.
Clearly, the camaraderie between the two must be good which is with most players in the IPL. But after team’s poor show in 2018 and 2019 along with Lynn’s poor show with the bat, the franchise decided to release the Australian. Lynn has been with the five-time champions Mumbai Indians (MI) since then and also played a game in the recently suspended season.
