What was feared against Pakistan in T20 World Cup 2022 happened. Opener and vice-captain KL Rahul once again became the victim of Naseem Shah. He was dismissed for 4 runs in 8 balls. KL Rahul was completely devastated by young fast bowler Naseem Shah’s bowling ball. Indian cricket fans were stunned to see what happened after that. KL Rahul, on the other hand, had to return to the pavilion. Something similar happened in the Asia Cup. Similarly, KL Rahul was out even then.
KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma, who came on the field to start the Indian team chasing the target of 160 runs, faced Shaheen Shah Afridi in the first over. On the very first ball, KL Rahul was caught back to the bowler that Shaheen Shah missed. However, despite this, Pakistan did not have to wait much for the wicket of KL Rahul.
Naseem Shah, who came to the second over, started off two balls, while KL Rahul took two runs on the third ball, while the fifth ball was completely devoured. The ball hit the stumps after hitting the bat and KL Rahul’s innings came to an end. In this way India got the first blow in the second over.
Earlier, Indian team captain Rohit Sharma had won the toss and decided to bowl first. Batting first, Pakistan team scored 159 runs for the loss of 8 wickets in the allotted 20 overs. For him, Shan Masood scored an unbeaten 52 runs in 42 balls with 5 fours, while Iftikhar Ahmed scored 51 runs in 34 balls with 2 fours and 4 sixes. Arshdeep and Hardik Pandya took 3-3 wickets for India. Apart from these, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami took 1-1 wickets.
