If there is any mistake from a person, then accepting it, he should be ready to bear the consequences. But if you have to bear the brunt of someone else’s mistake, then nothing can be worse than that. The Indian cricket team, which reached England for the Test series, had to go through such a bad experience. As soon as he reached the tour, the burden of injustice in England was also very heavy for the Indian team. Especially for the Indian fast bowler, this incident brought even more disappointment. This incident, which happened between India and England on this day i.e. June 7, 1996, changed the course of the match.

Nasir was playing on 14 then and Indian fast bowler Javagal Srinath’s ball touched his gloves and got caught in the gloves of the wicketkeeper. Hussain was out. But unfortunately see that the umpire could not see all this and Hussain was declared not out. And after that, Hussein did the work of sprinkling salt on the wounds of the Indian team by playing a match-winning innings of 128 runs while giving a crushing injury to Team India.
