New Delhi. The T20 World Cup is being played between India and Pakistan at the historic Cricket Ground in Melbourne. India won the toss and elected to bowl first in this match. Arshdeep Singh got India off to a good start and dismissed Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan in the powerplay itself. However, after this Iftikhar Ahmed and Shan Masood took over Pakistan’s innings. There was a partnership of 76 runs in 50 balls for the third wicket between the two. However, India made a comeback in the match by dismissing Iftikhar and then Shadab Khan in two consecutive overs. Masood held one end. However, due to the failure of the new batsmen to rotate the strike, Shan Masood could not come on strike for 2 overs.
Shan Masood got a chance to bat in the 15th over. He came to bat in the 15th over. R Ashwin was bowling this over. On the fourth ball of his over, Masood came out and tried to hit a shot. But Ashwin had already sensed this, so he shortened the length of the ball. In such a situation, the ball did not come completely on Shaan’s bat and rose high in the air and directly hit the spider camera cable and fell at a place where the fielder was not there. Under the rules, the ball was declared dead after hitting the spider camera and India were left out of the wicket of Shan Masood.
Spider cam adds nothing to the game and just cost India a wicket. Farcical in a World Cup. Needs binning off promptly @icc #indvspakmatch #ICCT20WorldCup #ICCT20WorldCup2022 pic.twitter.com/IMMTXJcfsl
