Visakhapatnam: Former India left-arm spinner Murali Kartik was trolled after mistaking Shai Hope for Shimron Hetmyer during the second ODI between India and the West Indies here on Wednesday.

The contest ended in a tie with both teams scoring over 300 runs. First, the hosts scored 321/6 in 50 overs and the Windies, powered by Hope's century (123 not out), tied the contest, with 321/7 in their quota of overs.

India captain Virat Kohli hit a superb 157 not out and became the fastest to reach the 10,000 runs milestone, breaking Sachin Tendulkar's record.

In reply, Hope ensured that the visitors were in the hunt and he hit a boundary off the final ball of the match, from Umesh Yadav, to level the scores.

After the match, Kartik, who is a part of the Star Sports commentary panel, interviewed Hope. He made an error when he addressed Hope as Hetmyer. However, he corrected his mistake but internet users were quick to latch on to the gaffe and troll him.

One of the Twitter users asked whether Kartik was "sleeping" throughout the match at Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium.
