PAK vs AFG: During the three-match T20 series between Pakistan and Afghanistan, many interesting moments were witnessed. One such moment occurred during the third T20 match held in Sharjah on Monday. In the match, Pakistan captain Shadab Khan was dismissed in a similar fashion to Naseem Shah, who was dismissed in the first match after being hit in the stomach by the ball and then hitting the ball with the bat. Similarly, Shadab also tried to hit the ball but instead got hit in the stomach, and his bat dislodged the bails as he lost his balance, resulting in him returning to the pavilion after being hit wicket.
Shadab Khan’s hilarious dismissal
This incident occurred during the first ball of the 20th over. Shadab, who had played an impressive inning of 28 runs in 16 balls with 5 fours, aimed to finish the match in style in the last over. However, Farid Ahmed’s powerful delivery hit Shadab’s stomach while he was attempting a swing, causing him to lose his balance.
In a moment of panic, Shadab turned back and awkwardly hit the ball with his bat, resulting in him being out as soon as the bails fell. Even the bowlers and umpires found the incident amusing and laughed. Shadab himself seemed surprised by the wicket he just gave away. However, fans were also left in surprise as Naseem was dismissed earlier in the previous in the same style.
