New Delhi. India got off to a great start to their ICC T20 World Cup 2022 campaign. They defeated arch-rivals Pakistan at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on 23 October. The hero of this victory of Team India was former Indian captain Virat Kohli. With the fate of the game being decided in the last ball, the match went down in history as one of the greatest matches between the two sides. However, an incident involving Mohammad Nawaz’s no-ball has become a topic of discussion in Pakistan, in which Shahid Afridi has now also joined.
In the final over of the match, when India needed 13 runs from the last 3 balls, a delivery from Mohammad Nawaz went beyond waist height. This ball was sent by Virat Kohli for a six. After Virat Kohli signaled, the umpires discussed and declared it a no ball. This was the turning point of the match. Several Pakistani players, unable to digest their country’s defeat, accused the umpires of giving it a no-ball without consulting the third umpire.

Now Shahid Afridi has questioned the on-field umpires for not consulting the third umpire and giving a quick decision. Shahid Afridi said on Sama TV, “Ever since this third umpire has come… there is a lot of run out, where the pay on field umpire just signals to the third umpire. That was an important position, if he had referred to the third umpire, he would have told you, but you did it right away – the no-ball gesture. You don’t have so many eagle eyes, could have referred to the third umpire.”
Let us tell you that Pakistan had set a target of 160 runs to win in front of India. India did not start well. India’s score in 6.1 overs was 31 runs for the loss of 4 wickets. After this Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya made a record century partnership. Kohli played a brilliant innings of 82 runs in 53 balls and led India to a 4-wicket win.
