Dinesh Karthik had a funny reply for Marnus Labuschagne, who gave fans a sneak peek into his luggage for the upcoming India Tour.

With Australia's Tour of India scheduled to begin from February 9, focus will be on the four-match Test series between both sides. Team India are the defending champions, having won 2-1 in 2020-21 in Australia, courtesy of some heroic batting from wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant.

Reacting to the Aussie's post, Karthik wrote, "You get great coffee in india too mate".

Responding to Karthik's comment, one fan revealed it was promotional post by Labuschagne. "Are Sir promotion kar rha hai ye", one fan wrote.

Another fan added, "Filter coffee. The bestest kind. But DK, Moccona coffee in Australia is amazing!"

One fan joked, "They are suspecting that maybe get treated like India in Australia in Recent T20 Worldcup... Lol".

Another user came to Labuschagne's defence and wrote, "It’s him being homesick already DK, not a coffee connoisseur."

Taking a dig at the 2018 Australian ball-tampering scandal, one fan joked, "Its ok DK, at least its not baggage full of sandpapers. Hopefully!"

The upcoming Test series will also see Ravindra Jadeja return to the side. After a lengthy layoff due to injury, the all-rounder announced his comeback with a seven-wicket haul in the Ranji Trophy.
