  • In the fourth ODI between India and West Indies at Mumbai, Shikhar Dhawan got a taste of his own medicine after being dismissed
  • The incident took place in the fifth ball of the 12th over

In the fourth ODI between India and West Indies at Mumbai, Shikhar Dhawan got a taste of his own medicine after being dismissed. The left-handed opener is known for his moustache, but more for his iconic 'Gabbar celebration'.

But on Monday, tables were turned, as he had to face his very own created celebration. The incident took place in the fifth ball of the 12th over. Dhawan, who was on strike, was dismissed by youngster Keemo Paul. The West Indian couldn't hid his excitement, and went ahead to do the Gabbar celebration in front of Dhawan. Though, instead of taking offence, the left-handed batsman smiled and walked away.

India had won the toss, and chose to bat first in a crucial encounter. Dhawan and Rohit Sharma gave the hosts a great start, taking the score to 71 in less than 12 overs, before Dhawan was dismissed.

Virat Kohli, looking to make his fourth consecutive century on the trot, was the next to arrive at the crease. He looked fluent early on, and looked set to create history again. But just when he got going, he was caught by Shai Hope of Kemar Roach's bowling.

Earlier in the series, the Indian skipper had created a number of records. During the third ODI against West Indies, after becoming the first Indian batsman to score three centuries on the trot in ODIs. He became just the eighth batsman in the history of ODI cricket to accomplish this feat, following the likes of Zaheer Abbas, Quinton de Kock, Saeed Anwar, Ross Taylor, Herschelle Gibbs, AB de Villiers and Kumar Sangakkara- the latter leading the way with four centuries in a row.

Earlier in the series, the Indian skipper had become the fastest batsman to reach the 10,000 run mark in this format. He achieved this feat in his 205th innings, overtaking his mentor Sachin Tendulkar who had reached the same number in 259 innings, while further enhancing his reputation as arguably the best ever player of this format.
