Shaheen Afridi T20 World Cup: Hi re luck…! Then they lost by dropping the catch, now Pakistan lost by catching the catch.

New Delhi: Cricketers say that the catch is the most important thing in the match. If caught on time, the course of the match can change, but for Pakistan, the T20 World Cup in the title match of 2022 is no less than a nightmare. Catching proved to be the most dangerous for him and from here the match turned towards England. On the other hand, in 2021, after Matthew Wade’s catch was dropped from Hasan Ali, the match was turned upside down and Pakistan lost.

Now you are thinking that how taking a catch in the match against England can cost Pakistan, then let us tell you that Harry Brook was caught by Shaheen Shah Afridi on the third ball of the 13th over. When he was taking a catch off the bowling of Shadab Khan, his leg got twisted. After this, Shaheen went out of the ground for some time. He was having trouble walking.

England came under pressure after this wicket. The pressure increased further when Naseem Shah allowed just two runs in the 14th over. There was a need to take advantage of this pressure, but Shaheen Shah could not bowl. In such a situation, Haris Rauf was given the ball, then 8 runs were scored in this over. Shaheen was given the 16th over. He was in trouble, but still to bowl. However, he returned after the very first ball and the over was completed by Iftikhar Ahmed. Stokes hit a four and a six on the last two balls of this over.

In the next i.e. 17th over, Moin Ali turned the dice by hitting Mohammad Wasim Junior for 3 fours. The effect was that England managed to chase down the target one over in advance. Had Shaheen completed both his overs here, Pakistan might have had some chance. At least Captain Babar Azam believes so. Ahmed conceded 13 runs in that over which included a six and a four off Ben Stokes. This took the pressure off England.

Babar said after the match, ‘If Shaheen had done that over, things could have been different. Then two left-handed batsmen (Stokes and Moeen Ali) were at the crease and so I handed the ball to the off-spinner. He said, ‘We could not play the partnership due to which we went on the back foot. England bowlers bowled well but there is no excuse here. We played according to the conditions but we were under pressure till the 20th over. If Shaheen was there, the story could have been different.

On the other hand, in the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup 2021, Hasan Ali left Matthew Wade’s coach, which cost Pakistan dearly. In this match, Wade blew the air of Pakistani bowling with a beating.
