WATCH: Rohit Sharma furious, lashes out at Shubman Gill after horrible mix-up causes run-out at 0 | Rohit Sharma,Shubman Gill,India Afghanistan T20 match- True Scoop

Rohit Sharma couldn’t suppress his anger after an unfortunate run out at 0 causing him to lash out mid-match at fellow batsman Shubman Gill. India's captain Rohit Sharma made his return to T20I cricket after a 14-month hiatus in the ongoing three-match series against Afghanistan. But the comeback did not go as planned as the Indian opener faced only two balls before getting dismissed for a duck due to a mix-up with non-striker Shubman Gill.

 

Rohit hit a powerful shot to mid-off off Fazalhaq Farooqi's delivery, and Ibrahim Zadran made an impressive effort to stop the ball. However, a miscommunication between Rohit and Gill led to a failed run attempt. Zadran efficiently collected the ball and threw it to the striker's end, catching Rohit off guard. The captain's frustration was palpable as he expressed his disappointment with Gill at the opposite end.

 

The match against Afghanistan was Rohit’s first T20I appearance since the 2022 T20 World Cut semi-final against England. This was Rohit’s fifth duck in T20Is, as the Indian Captain equaled Babar Azam, Mashrafe Mortaza, and William Porterfield in the list. 

 

Afghanistan set India a 159-run target after being asked to bat first in Mohali on Thursday, January 11. Although Rohit was run out for a duck and Gill contributed only 23 runs, the hosts registered a six-wicket win with 15 deliveries to spare to start the three-match series on a winning note.
