Rohit was at the wrong end of a poor call and a superb pick and throw from backward point.
During India's last match against Sri Lanka, Rohit Sharma had run out Lahiru Thirimanne with an easy pick and throw from the backward point region after the batsman made a suicidal call for a single. Today, it was Rohit who was at the wrong end of a poor call and a superb pick and throw from backward point.
In the 22nd over, Gautam Gambhir steered a delivery from Rangana Herath towards backward point and called Rohit for a quick single. Rohit sprinted out of the blocks but was not quick enough to beat an excellent throw from Mahela Jayawardene. He had to wait a few nervous moments while the third umpire took a look at the call, but it was evident that Rohit was struggling. Sure enough, the giant TV screen soon flashed his verdict.
