Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma started things well for India chasing 270 against South Africa in the first ODI at Durban. Rohit was soon dismissed on 20 by Morne Morkel, Dhawan however was looking in good touch until a miscommunication with Virat Kohli that cost him his wicket.

Dhawan was unaware of where the ball was after Chris Morris appealed for a LBW. Kohli forced him for a run. Aiden Markram was quick to pick up the ball and release as Dhawan was well short of his ground.

However, twitterati saw the funny side of it and poked fun at the incident.

 

 

However, Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane have built a 100-run stand for the third wicket putting India in a good position in the game. If India wins the game it would be their first ODI victory against South Africa in Durban.
