In the T20 World Cup match being played in Melbourne, the Pakistani team, batting first, scored 159 runs in the stipulated 20 overs and set a target of 160 runs for the victory in front of the Indian team. Pakistan’s star batsmen were flop in this match but Iftikhar Ahmed and Shan Masood saved their team’s shame by scoring fifties.
Ball hits spidercam; deprives India of Masood’s wicket
Both of them showed the strength to fight with the Indian bowlers but also found a lot of luck. If Shan Masood had not got the support of luck, then perhaps Pakistan would not have reached 159. Actually, it happened that Shan Masood tried to play an aerial shot off Ravichandran Ashwin in the 15th over of the innings but the shot got mistimed.
After hitting Masood’s bat, the ball was in the air for a long time and it seemed that Masood would be caught out but Spider Cam did not support Team India. Masood was getting caught easily but the ball hit the spider cam and Masood survived. By law, the ball is considered dead when it hits a spider cam.
Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya were very unhappy after seeing this incident and they also showed their anger on camera. Even the Indian captain got angry seeing the Pakistan batsmen running and told them that it was a dead ball. The video of this incident is becoming increasingly viral on social media and fans are also expressing their displeasure.
