In the 18th match of T20 World Cup 2021, South Africa defeated West Indies by 8 wickets. In this match, there was a great performance of South African batsmen and bowlers. However, in this match, a major accident was also avoided. Pakistani umpire Aleem Dar, who was officiating in the South Africa-West Indies match, avoided getting injured not one but 2-2 times, that too on the same ball. The video of this incident is becoming fiercely viral on social media.
The incident happened in the 20th over of the West Indies innings. When Kieron Pollard played a very quick shot on the front of Pretorius. The ball came very fast towards umpire Aleem Dar but he somehow saved himself. Aleem Dar was falling down and then a sharp throw came towards him from behind. Aleem Dar once again somehow saved himself. This throw was thrown by South African player Rasi van der Dusan. After taking the catch, Dusan threw a very fast throw towards the bowler but Aleem Dar was in front and he narrowly survived. Let us tell you that if one of the two had hit the ball on the head of Aleem Dar, then anything could have happened.
