India vs Sri Lanka 1st ODI: Had Rohit Sharma run out in October, he would not be out
Indian openers Rohit Sharma ran out in an unfortunate manner. Rohit, after a little hesitation, looked set to reach the other end of the pitch in time but as he tried to slide his bat into the ground, a rather rough contact with the ground got it stuck before falling out from the batsman's hand. Despite entering the crease with bat, the right-hander seemed to have made it to the crease in time but since his foot was in the air at the moment when bails were removed, the umpire had to give him out. The dismissal took place on the last ball of the 5th over. But if it had happened in October, he would not have got out. Under new rule from October, if batsman's body and bat cross the crease even though his bat bounces in the air, he will not be out.
