Watch: Bizarre Cheteshwar Pujara dismissal sets Twitter abuzz NewsFunda

NEW DELHI: As the deteriorating Chepauk track continued to ask questions on Day 3, India top order batsman Cheteshwar

Pujara

was the victim of a bizarre dismissal.

While attempting to get back into his crease, Pujara stuck out his bat, but it jammed in the pitch, just before the crease line and England wicket keeper

Ben Foakes

whipped off the bails to run Pujara out. Pujara in fact tried to get back into his crease after the bat jammed, trying to use his right leg and left hand, but by then the bails were off.

The incident happened in the first over of the morning session when Pujara stepped out against

Moeen Ali

off the final ball of that over, only to flick the ball straight to

Ollie Pope

at short-leg.

What should have been an easy return to the crease ended in a run out.

Watch the dismissal here:

I think we can all agree that Pujara is the King of getting out in unconventional ways and he’s been extremely unlucky💯

This wasn’t a case of a batsman being done in by prodigious turn off the Chepauk pitch, but ironically the pitch did prove to be Pujara’s undoing in this case, as the bat didn’t slide over the crease line.
