New Delhi: The International Cricket Council (ICC) took to Instagram to share an interesting video after the Group 2 match between Afghanistan and India in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2021. The video highlights uncanny similarities between the bowling action of Afghanistan pacer Naveen-ul-Haq and team Indian’s star speedster Jasprit Bumrah.
“Same, same but different,” ICC wrote in the caption of the video.
Talking about the match, Naveen-ul-Haq failed to find his usual rhythm as bowled a very average spell in the India vs Afghanistan T20 World Cup. The Afghani fast-bowler conceded 59 runs in four overs and failed to bag a single wicket. His economy was very high – 14.75. On the other hand, India’s Jasprit Bumrah bowled remarkably well in the match as he bagged one wicket for 25 runs in his four overs.
India vs Afghanistan clash proved to be a one-sided affair. Batting first, India posted a mammoth total of 210 runs for loss of just two wickets and then restricted Afghanistan to just 144/7 in 20 overs. This was India’s first win in this tournament. Virat Kohli & Co. will play its second match tonight against Scotland in Dubai international cricket stadium.
In order to qualify for the T20 World Cup semi-finals, team India will have to win their remaining two matches by a big margin and if India bats first, they will have to win by at least 60-70 runs. If India bowls first in their upcoming match, they have to chase the target by losing fewer wickets and inside less overs.
