India and West Indies are currently engaged in the fourth ODI of the five-match series at Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. Indian captain, Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bat first while making two changes to the side. Ravindra Jadeja and Kedar Jadhav replaced Yuzvendra Chahal and Rishabh Pant.

Kohli failed to get a century today and was out for 16, his lowest score in ODIs in 2018. However, vice-captain Rohit Sharma scored a majestic 162 and was joined by Ambati Rayudu who scored exactly 100, his third century in ODIs. Both batsmen plundered the West Indies bowlers to all parts of the ground. With some cameos down the order, India finished at 377/5.

West Indies got off to a bad start with Chandrapaul Hemraj falling for 14 off Bhuvneshwar Kumar and in-form Shai Hope getting run out for no score with Kuldeep Yadav effecting a direct-hit. At 20/2, things got worse for West Indies when Marlon Samuels and Kieran Powell had a misunderstanding, giving Virat Kohli a chance to run out the latter which he did with a backhand flick.

It was a sensational dismissal and was something that brought a wide smile on the face of the Indian skipper. Here is the video of the run out:
