Former India batsman Virender Sehwag took a hilarious dig at the Pakistan cricket team with a cheeky jibe following Pakistan’s epic collapse against India in Ahmedabad.
They looked good in place for a total of around 270-300 when they were 150/2 in 28 overs. However, a shocking collapse – though not too shocking given Pakistan’s history – saw them go from 155/2 to 191 all-out, losing 8 wickets for 36 runs.
IND vs PAK: Virender Sehwag trolls Pakistan team with “sabko batting milegi” dig
Former batsman and now a commentator Virender Sehwag, who is known for notoriously trolling other teams and their ex-cricketers, hilariously took a famous dig of “sabko batting milegi” on the Pakistani batters.
Virender Sehwag tweeted: “Hamaari Mehmaanawazi ki baat hi alag hai.
Saare Pakistani player ko batting mili 😂
Sabka khyaal rakha jaata hai.”
How did Pakistan’s collapse happen?
The match was in balance when Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan were in the middle with their partnership of 82 runs. At 28 overs, with Pakistan’s score being 150/2, they would have thought that they had the platform to launch an attack in the second half of their innings, as they often do with the likes of Iftikhar Ahmed, Shadab Khan, and Saud Shakeel to follow.
Mohammed Siraj cleaned up Babar Azam with a brilliant delivery. Even more outstanding balls came from Jasprit Bumrah to clean bowl Rizwan and Shadab Khan. Iftikhar Ahmed was unlucky to under-glove a leg-side delivery from Kuldeep onto his leg-stump, while Kuldeep used his trickery to get Shakeel lbw. Pandya and Jadeja cleaned up the rest.
Kuldeep Yadav said: “I have been enjoying the World Cup. I knew where to bowl on this pitch. Difficult wicket to bowl on to be honest, it’s on the slower side. They (Pakistan) were not trying too much, so kept it wicket to wicket varying my pace. First seven overs we didn’t give too much width, they were not trying to do much. Rizwan didn’t sweep me, I was hoping to make him play a bad shot. I have been watching him (Shakeel) sweep a lot or the paddle, so I was trying to keep it wicket to wicket. Luckily I got him. Unbelievable (to play in front of a large crowd)”
