T20 World Cup: India beat Pakistan by 7 wickets in their first match of Women’s T20 World Cup 2023. A big mistake from the umpire came to light in this match.
Women’s T20 World Cup (Women’s T20 WC) on Sunday night (February 13) India vs Pakistan (INDW vs PAKW) was a thrilling match. In this, the Indian team won on the last ball of the 19th over. A big mistake was made by the umpires in this thrilling match. In the 7th over, when the Indian team was chasing the target, the Pakistan bowler was made to bowl 7 balls instead of 6. Here comes a four off the 7th ball. So now Pakistani cricket fans are commenting on social media that this mistake is a reason for Pakistan’s defeat.
Batting first in the Women’s T20 World Cup, Pakistan scored 149 runs for the loss of 4 wickets. After that, the Indian team started slowly in the power play and scored 43 runs for the loss of one wicket in the first 6 overs. All rounder Nida Dar came to bowl the seventh over. He gave only 6 runs in 6 balls. However, the seventh ball had to be bowled by mistake. But even the bowler did not care about this. On this extra ball of Nida Dar, Indian batsman Jemima Rodrigues eased some pressure on her team by hitting a brilliant four. Along with the umpire, the bowler is also at fault. Had she remembered her balls there would have been a chance to correct the umpire’s mistake.
This extra ball did not seem so heavy at that time, but when India won the match by a very close margin, the fans realized the value of this ball. Indian team needs 41 runs in four overs to win. The result of the match is up for grabs. But if the additional four runs were not scored, the run rate pressure on the Indian team would have increased. With this mistake, the Pakistani fans targeted the umpires on the field.
Every time India plays Pakistan in a World Cup match the umpires ALWAYS favor India. Today Pakistan had to bowl a 7 ball over. And the extra ball went for 4 runs. Crazy stuff🤷♂️ #INDvPAK #T20WorldCup2023 pic.twitter.com/yICI221IQS
