Cricket is called a game of gentlemen and there are many instances when these gentlemen engage in funny acts. A similar incident occurred during day 2 of the India vs West Indies 1st Test when Ravindra Jadeja dismissed West Indian batsman Shimron Hetmyer with a run out.

The incident happened during the 12th over of the West Indies’ batting in the first innings. Ravichandran Ashwin bowled to Shimron Hetmyer who hit a shot to mid-wicket. Hetmyer called his partner Sunil Ambris to take a run but changed his mind after taking a few steps. This created a confusion among both the batsmen and both started running in the same direction towards the wicket keeper’s end.

Ravindra Jadeja was the fielder who grabbed the ball at mid-on but seeing both the batsmen running in the same direction, he did not throw the ball to Ashwin, who was expecting a throw for run-out. Instead, Jadeja came walking towards the stumps to dismiss the batsman. Ashwin moved from behind the stumps getting a little angry over Jadeja’s act.

Witnessing this, Hetmyer started running towards the non-striker’s end so as to evade run out. Jadeja kept walking towards the stumps and threw the ball over the stumps from a distance of about two yards. Although it was a funny act of Jadeja to dismiss Hetmyer with run-out, Jadeja was quite lucky as the ball did not miss the stumps. To watch the video, check the link below.
