In the second game of the ICC World Cup 2023 between Pakistan and the Netherlands, Bas de Leede, the versatile Dutch player, got his revenge on Pakistan’s Haris Rauf, who had inflicted a nasty injury on him with a vicious bouncer during the T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia.
Bas de Leede, who had earlier claimed four wickets against Pakistan, made a significant impact with the bat, amassing 67 runs from 68 deliveries. In a defining moment of the match, he sent Haris Rauf’s ball soaring for a six in the 25th over and exchanged a confident wink with the bowler.
