After a gruelling test series, it was the turn of ODI series between India and South Africa. At the bouncy track of Kingsmead, South Africa posted 269/8 at the end of 50 overs. India lost Rohit Sharma earlier, when Virat came to accompany Shikhar at the centre. The duo added 35 runs for the 2nd wicket before a nightmare turned out for Shikhar Dhawan. He got run out on a personal score of 35 on 29 balls. Shikhar Dhawan bizarre run out in 1st ODI
There was a lbw appeal and that put off Dhawan a bit. He was searching for the ball for a while, and Kohli was more than halfway down. Dhawan spots it late and decides to go for the run. Markram, from backward point, runs forward, collects and hits the stumps at the bowler’s end. Dhawan was nowhere in the frame, he gets run-out. Shikhar Dhawan bizarre run out in 1st ODI was not enjoyed by the cricket fans, as they blasted their feelings on twitter.

It was Kohli who gifted Dhawan’s wicket to SA and that too when Dhawan was looking good, scoring at 100+ strike rate. ?? Now Kohli needs to score 100+ and see Ind home

Kohli has time and again said Dhawan is his best friend, but never did we get a bigger proof than that. Your best friend doesn’t give a shit what you have become in life. ?#INDvSA

Only twice Dhawan has been run out in ODIs, both with Kohli on the other end.
