Virender Sehwag claimed that there were two reasons why India’s Super 4 match versus Pakistan ended in a loss in the 2022 Asia Cup.
At the International Cricket Stadium of Dubai. Pakistan, who was chasing 182 runs, defeated India by five wickets on the game’s penultimate ball.
India and Pakistan’s Asia Cup Super 4 match on Sunday was tightly contested. So the tough game was won by the Babar Azam-led team. has 182 runs to score against India and five wickets in hand. On the sixth ball of their innings, Pakistan scored their final run. So former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag thinks that Arshdeep Singh’s missed catch of Asif Ali and the wide deliveries made by the Indian bowlers cost India the match against Pakistan.
So in the 18th over of the frenzied chase, Asif Ali top-edged the ball to Arshdeep at short third man. Ravi Bishnoi was just a few inches away from getting his wicket. So the Indian southpaw missed the easy catch, allowing Asif to survive and score 16 runs in 8 balls to put an end to the contest.
On the other hand, the Indian bowlers collectively gave up 8 extra runs, of which 6 were wides.
So I think the key reasons for India’s loss against Pakistan were Arshdeep Singh’s lost catch and the wide deliveries the Indian bowlers produced. India bowled a lot of wide balls, Sehwag said after the game on Cricbuzz.
