- Rahane was given out for 112 by the third umpire after he looked at the replays
- The incident happened in the 100th over of the innings and India were 294/6
- Tim Paine was given not out for a similar incident on Sunday
On Monday, India skipper Ajinkya Rahane was involved in yet another unfortunate run-out, but this time he ended up losing his own wicket after a well-made 12th Test hundred.
Rahane misjudged Marnus Labuschagne’s throw and called for a run after Ravindra Jadeja had pushed the ball to cover attempting to get to his fifty. He was outside the crease by a very thin margin, but the third umpire declared it to be out. The incident happened in the 100th over of the Indian innings, and with the out decision India were 294/6.
The run-out was very similar to what happened with the Australia skipper Tim Paine in the first innings of this Test. But in that instance, he was declared to be not out. In both cases the bat appears to be on the white mark, which is usually ruled to be out.
But after Rahane was declared out on Monday, social media was up in arms asking how the two similar cases could result in different decisions.
“The third umpire has got a shot here of the separation point and the bat on the line.”

The difference between this and the Paine run out is that the bails are dislodged when Rahane is on the crease line. For Paine, the bails dislodged inbetween frames and it was much more ambiguous

That should have been NOT OUT on the basis that the Australians did not appeal alone. I, for the life of me, can’t see the difference b/w this and NOT OUT run out yesterday.
