The incident took place when Nathan Lyon was bowling in the 48th over of India’s innings. In the fifth ball of this over, the coordination between Virat and Rohit was disrupted. Kohli on strike plays the ball towards mid-wicket. Kohli thinks he can get a single. He took two or three steps forward, saw the danger and turned back. However, Rohit came into the middle of the crease to take a run from the non-striker’s end. Seeing Kohli retreat, Rohit went back. He narrowly escaped a run out due to Kohli’s mistake.
