The countdown for the ICC Men’s ODI World Cup is nearing its end. The highly-anticipated mega tournament will get underway on October 5. Meanwhile, all ten participating teams were occupied in playing the warm-up games to adapt to the conditions. On the other hand, few of the games were abandoned without a ball being bowled owing to persistent rains and drizzles.
During the warm-up game between Pakistan and Australia, a fielding mishap featuring two Pakistani players grabbed the eyeballs of the cricket fraternity. It was a fielding error that could easily been avoided had it not been for miscommunication between the players. However, Pakistani players were caught involved in a hilarious fielding attempt, which left the internet in splits.
Shikhar Dhawan savagely trolls Pakistan fielders on social media
India’s experienced cricketer Shikhar Dhawan took to his X handle (previously known as Twitter) and hilariously trolled Pakistan fielders for their fielding effort. The likes of Mohammad Nawaz and Mohammad Wasim Jr. The clip begins with both Pakistani players trying to stop the ball but as it turns out, they end up committing a big blunder as the duo makes a complete mess on the field by missing the ball.
Shikhar Dhawan found the video clip funny as he not only shared it on his handle but also added a caption that reads, “Pakistan & fielding never-ending love story #PakistanFielding #PakCricket.”
