5. INDIA vs. PAKISTAN, INDIA’S FIRST ENCOUNTER AT ICC-CT, EDGBASTON, 2017
This time it was Rohit who was the victim of the runout. It was India’s first match at ICC Champions trophy and was facing their arch-rivals Pakistan. Virat and Rohit put up a good show of batting after Dhawan’s wicket fell. Rohit was batting on 91 and everyone was excited as he was reaching his ton. Kohli hit a delivery towards point and took off for a single. Rohit hesitated but eventually responded and he knew that to reach the striker’s end he had to dive in. Replays showed that Rohit reached his crease and the bat crossed the line but due to the dive, the bat bounced and lost the contact with the ground when the wicketkeeper hit the stumps. So Rohit was declared run out as he was not grounded. India won this match by 124 runs (D/L method).
