Rohit Sharma’s woes against left-arm speedsters persist, with Shaheen Shah Afridi once more sending his stumps flying during the India-Pakistan Asia Cup 2023 match at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium.
Shaheen Afridi bowled a peach of a delivery outside off, which then pulled off a magical move after touching the pitch. Rohit went for the defensive, but the ball’s crafty trickery left him stunned as it kissed the top of the off stump.
Right after Rohit Sharma’s dismissal, Virat Kohli joined him in the dugout, as he could only muster four runs from seven balls, all from a boundary off Naseem Shah, before Shaheen Afridi foxed him and sent him packing.
Earlier Rohit Sharma won the toss and decided to put the opposition in to bat. But it looks like his decision might be biting back because the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium is under a cloudy spell, and those conditions are giving Pakistan’s fast bowlers some serious swing assistance.
