Team India cricketer Dinesh Karthik took to social media on Wednesday to participate in the Bernie Sanders meme party. Karthik posted his own version of the meme that gained popularity after the US Senator arrived at the presidential inauguration wearing patterned mittens and a heavy winter jacket. The 35-year-old can be seen sitting on the couch, with Sanders changed next to him wearing a mask and the same outfit as in the meme. “After you’ve traveled all over the world, look who finally got in! #BernieSanders,” read the caption on the tweet.


Karthik has most recently been seen in the ongoing edition of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, where he represents Tamil Nadu. The wicket-keeper batsman is the captain of the team that has reached the semi-finals of the tournament after a victory against Himachal Pradesh in the second quarter-final.

Tamil Nadu won the coin toss and chose to bowl, limiting their opponents to 135 for 9 in 20 overs. Skipper Rishi Dhawan was the highest scorer for Himachal Pradesh, with 35 out of 26 deliveries. Dhawan scored two boundaries and a six during his knock. Sonu Yadav was the bowlers’ favorite, good for three wickets.


In response to this, Tamil Nadu was reduced to 66/5 in 12.3 overs, after a nice spell by Vaibhav Arora. However, a partnership between Baba Aparajith (52 *) and Shahrukh Khan (40 *) helped the team chase the target in 17.5 overs.

Karthik has been retained by the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) for the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
