Pakistan wicket-keeper Mohammad Rizwan gave an epic meme material image for the trollers and netizens during the PAK vs AFG match in Chennai. A photo of Mohammad Rizwan covering his face with his hand in the disappointment of the Pakistani fielders is going viral.
Pakistan produced a horrific fielding performance in Chennai against Afghanistan. Where it was Usama Mir dropping David Warner a few days ago in Bangalore, in Chennai vs Afghanistan, it was their ground fielding which was a major let down the fielders leaked multiple boundaries and conceded overthrows.
The Pakistani boundary rider fielders gave a shameful performance as there were about 4-5 instances when a fielder in the deep misfielded and conceded a boundary. After Shaheen Afridi made a mess of an opportunity at long-on, Mohammed Rizwan put his hand on his face in disappointment and frustration with the fielding effort from Shaheen.
This picture of Mohammad Rizwan went viral and creative Twitter (now X) users made hilarious memes:
Talking about the game, Babar Azam scored 74 runs in 92 balls and top-scored for his side against Afghanistan in Chennai. Babar was looking set for a ton but hit a ball straight to cover fielder. Azam was visibly upset with himself after getting out to a ball that he could have hit for a boundary. Shafique scored 58 runs while Shadab and Iftikhar both scored 40 runs each, taking Pakistan’s score to 282 runs.
In reply, Afghanistan got off to a brilliant start from Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Ibrahim Zadran, the pair adding 130 runs in 21.1 overs before Shaheen dismissed Gurbaz. The match is wide open and could go either way. It seems that dew has started to settled at the Chepauk, which will make it tougher for the Pakistani spinners.
