The PSL game between Islamabad United and Multan Sultans was a nail-biting thriller and the intensity was so high that Islamabad United skipper Shadab Khan couldn’t hold on to his emotion after getting dismissed at a crucial moment after scoring 44 runs.
During the 15th over of Islamabad United’s innings, pacer Ihsanullah bowled a quick delivery to Shadab Khan which clicked the 150 kmph mark on the speedometer. Shadab clearly got beaten by the excess pace as the delivery tailed back in to him. He tried driving through the cover region but could only manage an inside edge as the ball crashed onto his stumps.
Shadab Khan couldn’t hold on to his emotions after losing his wicket in a crunch situation of the game and yelled ‘Behn c**d’ into the stump mic. The video of Shadab Khan losing his cool went viral across social media platforms and garnered various reactions from netizens.
One of the social media users commented, ‘Virat Kohli will be proud of Shadab Khan‘ as Virat Kohli had made famous the Ben Stokes expletive in Hindi. Shadab took the long walk back to the pavilion after losing his wicket.
