Pakistan suffered a humiliating 3-0 defeat against England’s B team. In the last ODI, a video of former Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed and Shadab Khan clashing over a catch has surfaced. Sarfaraz did not get a chance in this match and he came to the field as a substitute keeper. But his wrong call was about to miss an easy catch, but Shadab, standing in point, dived and caught the catch. After this, on the contrary, Sarfaraz scolded him a lot.
Sarfaraz-Shadab clash over the catch of Lewis Gregory
Actually, Pakistan had set a huge target of 331 runs in the match. In response, the England team had scored 303 runs for 6 wickets till the 44th over. Haris Rauf came to bowl in the 45th over. On his very first ball, Lewis Gregory played a high shot in the process of making a big shot. Wicketkeeper Sarfaraz and Shadab standing on point both ran for the catch.
Sarfaraz did not give any call to Shadab
During this, Shadab was constantly keeping an eye on Sarfaraz and was waiting for the call. But Sarfaraz did not notice him and neither did he give any call to Shadab. Moving forward, when Sarfaraz saw Shadab coming from the front, he too stopped. In the end, Shadab took the catch by diving in some way. Most of such catches are caught by the wicketkeeper. But Sarfaraz’s mistake could have cost the team.
Sarfaraz said good and bad after the catch to Shadab
After this, when Shadab opposed it, Sarfaraz got angry at him and started scolding, but Shadab did not say anything and started celebrating wickets with the team. However, this wicket did not benefit the Pakistan team and England defeated Pakistan by 3 wickets. James Vince played a brilliant innings of 102 runs.
