If you’re in India, chances are you’re watching the match today. India are taking on Pakistan, and the Indian batsmen, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli in particular, put in a great display.
However, towards the end, after play had resumed Virat Kohli was adjudged caught behind off an Amir delivery. Kohli didn’t wait for the umpire’s signal and just walked.
But replays seemed to show that the Indian captain didn’t get anything on the ball. While there was a noise, the bat didn’t look like it was anywhere near the ball.
Yes, the internet was as perplexed as the rest of us was.

Indian fans be like
Virhat Kohli just gave himself out and walked thinking he knocked it to the keeper. Replay showed afterwards he didn’t hit it & wasn’t out. How odd!#INDvsPAK— SportsrusAu (@SportsrusAu) June 16, 2019

Kohli was not out but still je walked away. Commentators say there was some problem with the handle of his bat due to which he hear a sound which he thought was ball hitting the bat.
