Srinagar: Team India skipper Rohit Sharma has hearts of Cricket lovers around the World by withdrawing run out appeal against Sri Lanka skipper Dasun Shanaka to allow later complete his century during first ODI Barsapara Cricket Stadium on Tuesday.

When Sri Lanka were heading towards the end of their inning with comfortable win in sight for India, Indian pacer Mohammed Shami tried to outsmart Sri Lankan skipper Dasun Shanaka at the non-striker’s end with a Mankad run-out.

Shanaka, who earned plaudits for his lone warrior act in the 1st ODI, was caught short of the crease by speed merchant Shami in the final over of the action-packed contest. Though Shami removed the bails and completed the dismissal of the Sri Lankan batter, the hosts opted to withdraw the appeal following a slight intervention from skipper Rohit.

The incident happened on the fourth ball of the 50th over. After Shami’s run-out appeal was withdrawn by India, the Sri Lanka skipper creamed a boundary to complete his century on the penultimate ball of the contest. Finishing things in style for the Sri Lankan side, Shanaka then smoked a handsome six on the final ball to end the high-scoring encounter at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium.

Later Rohit Sharma explained why he withdrew the appeal and allowed Lanka captain to continue.

“I had no idea Shami did the run-out, Dasun Shanka on 98. The way he batted was brilliant. We cannot get him out. Not something we thought off. Hats off to him, he played really well,” Rohit Sharma said.
