IND Vs PAK Super 4 Match Highlights 2022
With a brilliant half-century, Mohammad Rizwan helped Pakistan mount a successful run chase. However, as the match drew to a close. Some subpar fielding in addition to other issues caused India to lose to Pakistan.
The balls flew all over the place and none of the Indian bowlers had any control over them. Allowing Pakistan’s batters to score runs at will. Despite losing so many wickets in the middle stages, former skipper Virat Kohli produced a half-century to help India reach a total of 181 for seven. Asif Ali was given a lifeline when Arshdeep Singh took a straightforward catch off the bowling of Ravi Bishnoi. Putting India’s fielding standards in disarray.
Ali smashed the Indian bowlers for 16 runs in just eight deliveries to exact revenge on them. This aided the lads in green in exacting retribution on Rohit Sharma’s team.
Stubbornness of Rohit Sharma
Fans have chastised Indian skipper Rohit Sharma’s decision for continuing to play with Hardik Pandya and Yuuzvendra Chahal. Despite the all-rounder leaking runs on both sides.
Additionally, the Indian team had to maintain an additional fielder within the circle. Since they couldn’t control the over rate. When left-handed batsman Mohammad Nawaz entered the middle of the inning. Rohit Sharma had the option of bringing in Deepak Hooda.
However, the 35-year-old Rohit Sharma’s hesitation lost India a victory. Rohit has also failed to get going with the bat recently. With his lofty starts failing to materialize into a massive score.
