The veteran wicket-keeper batter, Dinesh Karthik, has given a hilarious reply to Marnus Labuschagne’s tweet, where the latter talked about the pain that it took for him to bring a few kilograms of coffee while traveling to India for the upcoming tour on February 9. Taking to his official Twitter handle, Labuschagne posted an image of him carrying some coffee packets in his bag and captioned it as, “Just a few KG of coffee on its way to Guess how many bags?”
While the South Africa-born cricketer’s tweet evoked mixed reactions from the netizens, it was Dinesh Karthik’s reply that stood out from the rest as he said, “You get great coffee in india too mate”. Notably, Marnus Labuschagne had also taken a handful of coffee packets to Pakistan last year during Australia’s all-former bilateral tour in the country.
