Karun Nair recently shot into the limelight after scoring a Test triple-century during England's recently tour to India. The right-hander became only the second Indian to register a triple-ton after Virender Sehwag when he registered an unbeaten 303-run knock against Alastair Cook's men. That innings however, didn't help Nair seal his place in the Test team as captain Virat Kohli opted for fit-again Ajinkya Rahane for the one-off Test against Bangladesh.
Nair's absence made no difference as India cruised to a 204-run win over Mushfiqir Rahim's side in Hyderabad. Kohli not just grabbed all the headlines with his fourth double ton during the Test, but also a day after, on Valentine's Day, with his special post for Anushka Sharma.
While the focus was on Kohli, Nair too took to Instagram to share a rather unique photo, which didn't go unnoticed, a day after Valentine's Day.
The 25-year-old uploaded a photo of a red Ford Mustang with KA 03 NA 303 number plate and captioned it 'My Valentine'.
Nair had smashed the England bowlers all over the park as India reached their highest-ever Test total of 759/7 before declaration. The Karnataka batsman had then said it would take a couple of days for the achievement to sink in.
"Everyone is being very nice to me. They have congratulated me. I think it will take a couple of days for myself to sink in. The dressing room atmosphere has always been really good and they have always backed me in whatever I have done," he had said at a press conference after the day's play.
Asked as to when he thought about getting to a triple-century, Nair said it was only after he reached 280 that his partner Ravindra Jadeja started egging him on to reach the milestone.
