Currently, T20 between India and England is going on and all fans are thoroughly enjoying the matches. Yesterday, in the 2nd T20I, some bizarre happened.
Bizarre dismissals are not very uncommon in these matches, but fans just couldn’t believe what Shikhar Dhawan did yesterday. Well, he got run-out in the most weird fashion and faced the wrath of Twitterati.
This incident happened in the 5th over wherein Liam Plunkett threw a delivery. It was a tough one but Rohit and Dhawan decided to take a single. He took a single, but he ran so slowly that he couldn’t complete his run. Looks as if his bat was slipping off his hand, which made the matter all the more complicated.
Dhawan could have easily reached the crease but his speed was too slow; here’s the video of the incident;

Not the first time!
Comedy of errors there from @SDhawan25 who loses the grip of his bat while dragging his bat in the crease. Morgan makes a polite appeal & the replays find Dhawan's bat & feet up in the air.
Well we all know this is not the First time👿 @BCCI#INDvsENG #NotAcceptable

He should be kicked out!
Shikhar Dhawan = When will you score runs in cricket – Seriously the selectors need to kick him out forever

It’s not Dhawan’s fault; run-outs are common in cricket and fans shouldn’t troll the cricketers this way.
