Sharma, who set the chase with his 42-ball 56, said that dropping Karthik down to No. 7 was part of a plan that came off well. Pandey holed out to long-on on the next ball, leaving India to get 34 runs in two overs. But unfortunately, Karthik's six off the last ball ensured a nightmare finish for the Tigers. But that was the idea - to have Dinesh at the back end, because he's batted in that position in a list of games for his state teams, ' Rohit said.
