Rohit Sharma’s maiden outing in IPL 2021 ended in an unfortunate run-out after a horrible mix-up took place between him and debutant Chris Lynn.
The run-out took place on the sixth ball of the 4th over, bowled by Yuzvendra Chahal when Lynn smashed the leggie towards the cover region. Rohit was keen to run for a single and Lynn almost took off, however, he backed off to sold Rohit’s wicket down the river as after reaching halfway through the pitch, Rohit had no chance of returning back to the crease. Rohit became the victim of Virat Kohli, who fired in the throw.
Meanwhile, social media was soon flooded with reactions to Rohit’s dismissal. While his fans were left heartbroken, on the other hand, there were many who came up with hilarious responses while reacting to Hitman’s dismissal.
Here, check out some of the best tweets on Rohit’s run-out. Have a look:

Rohit Sharma was '10 Vada pav per plate' fit today. If it was 1 vada pav less, he wouldn't have got run out.
