Indian skipper Virat Kohli is back among the headlines as he was left unimpressed after teammate Ravindra Jadeja took his time to run out Windies top order batsman Shimron Hetmyer during the second day of the first Test at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot. Virat Kohli seemed least pleased after the incident.
Seeing both the batsmen on the same end, Ravindra Jadeja decided to walk up to the stumps, instead of throwing the ball directly. This gave Hetmyer some hope as he decided to quickly run across to the bowler’s end. Thankfully, Ravindra Jadeja was quick to react as he instantly threw the ball at the stumps, but survived a scare as it narrowly clipped the bails.
The incident soon became the talking point for fans on Twitter. One of the fans said

@ashwinravi99 : What made you throw the ball so late?
Jaddu: I thought it is already given run out once the ball came to me.#INDvWI

Very funny from #RavindraJadeja. Look at how he is jogging towards stumps to cliff off the bails with ball, but throwed the ball and shattered the stumps seeing the batsman hurrying towards the crease. Look at the reactions from #ViratKohli and #Ashwin. #INDvWI #runout

Jadeja: Why did you declare so soon? I could have made a double
Kohli: What did you just say?
Ashwin: Jaddu atleast you got a 💯, I did not cross 2 digits
Pujara: I missed by a whisker & these guys are arguing

In the end, the fact that Jadeja managed to get the wicket calmed the tensions among the Indian camp, while the all-rounder managed to save his face from what could have proved to be a major embarrassment.
