Alrounder Hardik Pandya gave away his wicket to Proteas in the most unfortunate manner on Day 3 of the 2nd Test in Centurion.
As Virat Kohli's heroic efforts helped India cross the 300-run mark, it was Pandya's casual run out that ruined India's party to take a lead over the hosts.
While facing Rabada in the 68th over, Pandya tried to sneak in a single, little did he know, his captain wasn't too keen.
This resulted in Pandya gifting away his wicket as neither was his foot grounded nor his bat during his half-hearted attempt to return to his crease.
Naturally, the Internet got innovative and turned the TV replays of the bizarre run out into hilarious memes.

The run out gave some the déjà vu.
And got the commentators angry.
Early lesson for Hardik Pandya that this game will come to bite you back if you let confidence become arrogance.— Sanjay Manjrekar (@sanjaymanjrekar) January 15, 2018
Fortunately for Pandya, Internet shifted its focus towards captain who celebrated his ton in the most Kohli way.
