Alzarri Joseph's Thunderbolt Hits Rohit Sharma on the Toe in Dominica Test : Watch Video

Dominica: In the evening session of the first Test against the West Indies on Wednesday in Dominica, Indian captain Rohit Sharma lost control of his emotions and got hit on the toe by Alzarri Joseph.

It all started when Rohit inside-edged a yorker-length delivery from the West Indian pacer straight on his toe on the second delivery of the ninth over.

The Indian skipper became irate, and as he staggered to the non-striker's end, he uttered a profanity that was audible to everyone.
