Dinesh Karthik was seen fuming at Virat Kohli after his debatable runout during India’s T20 World Cup game against Bangladesh at the Adelaide Oval on Wednesday, November 2.
At the end of the 17th over, Karthik and Kohli saw a miscommunication between them. Kohli, who was at the striker’s end, told Karthik not to run even though he called for it. The ball had slipped from Shoriful Islam’s hands and hit the stumps. The umpire checked that the bowl hit the stumps first.
Islam bowled a wide full toss which Kohli hit straight to extra cover where Shakib Al Hasan was fielding. Dinesh Karthik was running and was sent back late to his end and was ultimately short of his crease.
The third umpire immediately gave his decision, and Dinesh Karthik was seen returning to the dugout. He could have survived if the referee had gone ahead with the doubt which emerged through the replay.
According to fans, it was not out as bails were dislodged when the ba wasn’t in the hands. Meanwhile, there were some gestures exchanged between the two players. Karthik was certainly unhappy with the dismissal and got angry at Virat Kohli for not listening to his call.

India edged Bangladesh in a last-ball thriller
Bangladesh scored 66 at the end of 7 overs before rain played spoilsport. Now the revised target for Bangladesh is 151 in 16 overs. Litton Das scored a quickfire fifty, putting the team in a commanding position.
Chasing 185, Bangladesh were ahead at one stage thanks to Litton Das’ splendid display with the bat. However, a rain delay shifted the momentum as Rohit Sharma and Co. slowly crawled back into the game with back-to-back wickets.
Nurul Hasan provided a late impetus, scoring 25* off 14, but Arshdeep held his nerve to take India home.
