After a misfield during Pakistan's Cricket World Cup 2023 warm-up match against Australia on Tuesday, veteran Indian cricket team batter Shikhar Dhawan humorously trolled the Pakistan cricket squad on social media.
Pakistan has been involved in some hilarious instances of bad fielding over the years, and Dhawan shared a video on X (previously known as Twitter) showing two fielders going for the same ball but waiting for the other one to collect the ball, which led to the ball going straight through the middle.
The Cricket World Cup would be won by the side with the strongest bowling unit, capable of containing the runs on India's batting-friendly surfaces, according to spin bowling all-rounder Shadab Khan of Pakistan.
Pakistan's spinners, who have been heavily criticised for failing to pick up wickets in the middle overs, are led by the 24-year-old.
In five Asia Cup games last month, Shadab only managed to take six wickets, four of which came against outsiders Nepal in a competition where Pakistan was eliminated in the Super Four round.
Shadab, though, expressed optimism that Pakistan's bowling may make a return in the World Cup, which starts on Thursday.
Because of the large totals that the pitches will yield, Shadab predicted that the side with the greatest bowling will win the World Cup.On Friday, Pakistan lost to New Zealand by five wickets in their first tournament warm-up game.
