Bangladesh wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim ran out in form South Africa opener Quinton De Kock after a dropped catch led to a horrible mix-up between the two batsmen.
Chasing a huge target of 330, de Kock, along with Aiden Markram, had given a slow but steady start to the South Africans, but the pressure of the high total showed as he went for a non-existent single after Rahim dropped his catch behind the stumps.
Unaware of his surroundings for a minute after the knick was dropped, de Kock dashed for the run despite Markram repeatedly calling ‘no’. Rahim ran to the ball and scored a direct hit from a few yards away as de Kock was left in no man’s land. He was dismissed for 23 runs of 32 deliveries faced.

A rare display of honesty from Quinton de Kock. He nicked the ball and walked.— Harsha Bhogle #UnlessOfCourse (@TweetsOfBhogle) June 2, 2019
Quinton de Kock, there, with the ultimate "playing Brian Lara Cricket for the first time and accidentally pressing the RUN button" dismissal. #CWC19— Vithushan Ehantharajah (@Vitu_E) June 2, 2019

Just saw the De Kock runout and can't stop laughing. Peak SA run out— Sab jhootay hain (@osamaahmed88) June 2, 2019
The non-striker, Markram sold De Kock there. He had a better view of where the ball was and should have stood still with a resolute NO! https://t.co/H5nGWId8io— Blacks in Whites (@BlaqsInCricket) June 2, 2019
I love the way Markram sold De Kock the dummy #SAvBAN— Johnjay (@Johnjay4u) June 2, 2019
Makram screwed up De Kock, he made the shout to run and paused half way, that didn’t help De Kock #SAvBAN— Joe (@joelgonda) June 2, 2019
De Kock has been South Africa’s biggest weapon with the bat lately and the most consistent run scorer for the Proteas. Even in the first World Cup match versus England, when South Africa were bundled out fir 207, he had kept his reputation intact with an able 68.
Several Twitter users in jest said the match was now over with his dismissal.
