Multan: Nepal skipper Rohit Paudal displays great reflexes during Asia Cup 2023 opener at Multan Cricket Stadium by dismissing Pakistan opener Imam ul Haq with a brilliant direct throw.
After being reduced to 21/1 in 4.3 overs, the onus was on Imam ul Haq and skipper Babar Azam to provide steady to start to the host. But, Nepal’s skipper Rohit Paudal stole the show with his bullet throw to dismiss Imam in the very next over.
It was the first delivery of the 8th over when Sompal Kami pitched a fuller delivery which Imam pushed towards mid-off and the southpaw called for a quick run.
But, Paudal with a quick throw knocked out the non-striker’s stumps.
Though, Imam put it a dive but still caught short of the crease. Pakistan reduced to 25/2 in 6.1 over. Watch Rohit Paudal’s brilliant bullet throw here.
At the time of submitting the copy, Babar Azam and Md. Rizwan are stitching a crucial partnersip in the middle to take their side to a competitive total. As an opener, Fakhar Azam contributed with 14 off 20 deliveries.
Pakistan: 49/2 (11 overs).
