Srinagar: Although there was plenty of action in the ongoing India vs Pakistan Asia Cup 2023 clash before rain halted play in Colombo, it was moment between Babar Azam and Haris Rauf that made everyone laugh out.
India were batting at 147/2 in 24.1 overs before rain brought the action to an halt.
Pakistan skipper Babar and pacer Haris Rauf were involved in animated discussion over an LBW appeal against Rahul. The incident took place in the 24th over as Rauf hit Rahul on his back thigh with a length ball. It felt like the ball was pass over the stumps but Rauf felt otherwise and also had his finger up. After being given not-out, Rauf then consulted Babar for a review, the only remaining for Pakistan, but Babar was convinced that the ball was missing the stumps.
Rauf in the process almost forced Babar to opt for the review, following which the Pakistan skipper kept gesturing him that it flying over the wickets. Looking at the exchange between the two, both Rahul and wicketkeeper Mohammad Rizwan burst out in laughter.
“No wonder, just be sensible. It’s got to be high,” noted an on-air commentator as Rauf kept suggesting Babar to take the review, to which, former India player Deep Dasgupta, who was also on-air, responded: “He’s (Babar) actually scolding Haris Rauf, how can you even ask for it.”
