In the T20 World Cup 2021, Pakistan made a great start against India (IND VS PAK). While bowling amazingly, Pakistani bowlers showed India’s top 3 batsmen the way to the pavilion in the first 6 overs. Shaheen Afridi took the wickets of Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul, while Hasan Ali took the wicket of Suryakumar Yadav. However, the Pakistani team did such an act during the match, for which it has been infamous.

In the 8th over of the Indian innings, Pakistani wicketkeeper Mohammad Rizwan made a strong appeal to dismiss Rishabh Pant. Rishabh Pant played a reverse sweep and Mohammad Rizwan made such a sharp appeal for the catch that it seemed that Pant was out. But umpire Erasmus did not give out. After this, Mohammad Rizwan asked Pakistani captain Babar Azam to take a review. Babar also came in Rizwan’s words and took the review.
Mohammad Rizwan’s lie was caught in the review!
Pakistani captain Babar Azam took DRS at the behest of Rizwan but when Ultra Edge came to the fore, he was disappointed. It was clearly visible in Ultra Age that the ball did not hit Pant’s bat and gloves. As a result, the third umpire gave Pant not out and Pakistan’s review got spoiled. Babar Azam appeared very disappointed and the color of Rizwan’s face was also blown away.
Let us tell you that Rishabh Pant played an innings of 39 runs in 30 balls against Pakistan. Pant hit 2 sixes in his innings. He shared a partnership of 53 runs in 42 balls with Virat Kohli. However, he got out in the turn of playing a big shot on Shadab Khan’s ball.
poor start for india
Earlier, India’s start against Pakistan was very poor. Vice-captain Rohit Sharma got out on the very first ball. He was out lbw on Shaheen Afridi’s in swing. After this, in the next over, KL Rahul was also bowled on Afridi’s in swing. Suryakumar hit a six as soon as he came to the crease, but in the last over of the powerplay, he too was caught by Mohammad Rizwan on the best ball of Hasan Ali.
