Adelaide: Bangladesh is set to lock horns with Pakistan in one of the most significant games of the T20 World Cup 2022 tournament. After electing to bat first, Bangladesh failed to score big against Pakistan after the destruction of Shaheen Shah Afridi and Shadab Khan.
The dismissal of Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan has sparked debate on social media after Shadab Khan LBW.
Shakib Al Hasan’s dismissal controversy: WATCH
As soon as the ball hit Hasan’s feet, Pakistan made a huge appeal and the on-field umpire gave clear play. Shakib Al Hasan was quick to judge and however DRS showed there was some contact on the bat, the on-field umpire’s decision stood.
Shaheen Shah Afridi – Pakistan’s hero of the game
Shaheen Shah Afridi became the hero of the innings as he took 4 consecutive wickets to restrict Bangladesh to 127 runs. The young pacer opened the account by dismissing Pakistan’s most dangerous player Litton Das for just 10 runs in the third over. Shadab Khan then shouldered the responsibility and dismissed two players in the 11th over.
Shaheen Shah Afridi took three more wickets in the 17th and 19th overs. Another Afridi victim was Mosaddek Hossain for 5 runs followed by Nurul Hasan for zero.
