Pakistani player Iftikhar wanted to hit the shot like Suryakumar Yadav, But he was out
PAK vs NZ: The fourth match of the tri-series was played between New Zealand and Pakistan. In this match, the bad batting of the Pakistan team was seen once again.
After the early dismissals of Rizwan and Babar Azam, the middle order again failed to impress and the team managed 130 runs in just 20 overs. Meanwhile, Iftikhar Ahmed played a wonderful shot in which the ball hit his bat and went straight into the fielder’s hands. The video of this incident is going viral.
Former South African batsman AB de Villiers and Team India’s Suryakumar Yadav are capable of hitting shots in all directions. But Iftiker also tried to do the same in this match. As he played a scoop shot off Tim Southee, Iftiker tried to collect the wicketkeeper’s backhand, but his cleverness got the better of him. The ball hit his bat and was caught. Tickner took a simple catch.
Talking about Iftikhar’s innings, in this match, he scored just 27 runs in 27 balls at the pace of a turkey. Only 3 fours came from his bat and his strike rate was just 100.
