Type cast exception

I am trying to read from avro data file and want to use specific object (exa sample.LogMessage)
The following code gives exception mentioned below. Reader.next() when collected in Object/Record, no exception is thrown which is expected.

Any help is appreciated.

public void testMethod5() throws Exception {
            DatumWriter<LogMessage> writer = new GenericDatumWriter<LogMessage>(LogMessage.SCHEMA$);
            DataFileWriter<LogMessage> out = new DataFileWriter<LogMessage>(writer);

            out.create(LogMessage.SCHEMA$, <File>);
            for (int i = 0; i < 100; i++) {
                  LogMessage msg = new LogMessage();
                  msg.applicationName = new Utf8("app" + i);
                  msg.userid = new Utf8("user" + i);
                  msg.message = new Utf8("this is test log message " + i);


            DataFileReader<LogMessage> reader;
            GenericDatumReader<LogMessage> din = new GenericDatumReader<LogMessage>(LogMessage.SCHEMA$);
            reader = new DataFileReader<LogMessage>(new File(<>), din);

            while (reader.hasNext()) {
                  LogMessage msg = reader.next();


java.lang.ClassCastException: org.apache.avro.generic.GenericData$Record cannot be cast to sample.LogMessage
