Virat Kohli’s run out on the first day of the day test between India and Australia made the world of cricket talk. Kohli was batting 74 before being exhausted after a poor call from his partner Ajinkya Rahane. Rahane asked for a quick single and when Kohli took off, his teammate retired, leaving the India captain in the center of the field. Nathan Lyon picked up the ball and ran out of Kohli to break a menacing 188-point partnership.

Since Kohli’s dismissal was due to a bad call from his partner, it made people argue whether Rahane should keep racing and likely sacrificed his wicket for his captain, Kohli. After the match, Sanjay Manjrekar and Glenn McGrath discussed whether there was room for Rahane to make that decision in that split second.

Manjrekar assessed the same, saying that he once had a similar exhaustion experience, where due to his mistake, his partner – none other than Sachin Tendulkar – had to pay the price. “I have a similar experience with Sachin Tendulkar. And I don’t even remember sacrificing my wicket, “Manjrekar said during the” Extraaa Innings “show on the Sony Sports Network.
“You see, because they were trying to take singles, lots of quick singles and they run pretty fast between wickets. He got involved but then he said no right away and stopped, ”McGrath said.
“Whether you have that split second – I’m the worst person to talk to about running between wickets – but if you just stopped, then realize that ‘My captain will finish, I my wicket, you must be really lit to think this way. “
Kohli’s wicket turned out to be the turning point on Day 1 when India lost Rahane, Hanuma Vihari soon after with six under. Ravichandran Ashwin and Wriddhiman Saha ensured that there was nothing else to bring India to 233 for six at the end of the game.
