India's top-order crumbled on Day 1 of the opening Test against Australia at the Adelaide Oval, but it was Rohit Sharma's dismissal that got cricket fans and social commentators talking the most.

"Australia's fifth bowler has been India's shot selection," said Mark Butcher during commentary, and the Indian batsmen proved the former English Test player right.

KL Rahul, Murali Vijay, Virat Kohli, and Ajinkya Rahane went for expansive drives early in their innings, only to get themselves dismissed by being caught behind or in the slips.

Despite the Indian debacle, Chesteshwar Pujara stood his ground and compiled 123 runs out of India's 250/9 at the stumps. Pujara's patient knock earned praises from fans on both sides. However, the second highest scorer in the batting line-up, Rohit Sharma, wasn't as lucky as Pujara. The player's score of 37 runs for 61 balls included two boundaries and three sixes, yet it was the way in which he got dismissed that disappointed many.

But what exactly did Sharma do?

The star batsman top-edged a Nathan Lyon ball to Marcus Harris, who was standing at deep square leg. The dismissal came after Harris caught the previous ball over the boundary line, also hit by Sharma, which was adjudged a maximum.




Many called it Sharma's very own 'brain-fade' moment and were critical of his soft dismissal.
