Easy catch left in the 19th over
Indeed, in the last ball of the 19th over of Sri Lanka’s innings, Pakistan had a big chance to dismiss Bhanuka Rajapaksa. Mohammad Hasnain’s delivery, Bhanuka plays an aerial shot towards deep mid-wicket. Asif Ali reached running fast to catch the ball, but then Shadab Khan also extended his hand towards the ball without seeing Asif. What was it then… Neither Asif could catch the ball nor Shadab..
Catch was also left in the 18th over
Shadab Khan had earlier dropped a simple catch of Rajapaksa on the fourth ball of the 18th over as well. Bhanuka took full advantage of the gift of life and scored an unbeaten 71 off 45 balls with the help of 6 fours and 3 sixes. He also got the Man of the Match award for this innings. Sri Lanka scored 170-6 in 20 overs.
Delhi Police had fun
Delhi Police also did not leave any chance to punch Pakistan’s poor fielding. Delhi Police posted a catch-drop video of Asif Ali and Shadab Khan on their official Twitter handle and captioned it, “Aye Bhai Zara Dekh Ke Chalo…” The song is also playing in the background of the video. This video of Delhi Police is being well-liked on social media.
