What was the thought after wide
Ravichandran Ashwin explained what was going through Nawaz’s mind after he widened the ball. Ashwin said, ‘He bowled the first ball from the leg side. I was relieved. I said to myself, ‘Thank God, it was wide. I didn’t even have to play it. I just watched the ball go towards the wicketkeeper and gave up.
Talking about it, Ashwin added – I was relieved that we got runs and now needed one run off one ball to win. I said to myself, thank goodness no one will throw stones at my house.’
The next ball is played at mid off
After the wide, India needed one run to win off the last ball. Mohammad Nawaz hits an over pitched ball on the leg stump. Ashwin plays it to mid-off and runs away to complete the run with ease. The Indian team won by one run and the account was also opened in the T20 World Cup 2022.
Got a chance before Chahal
By the way, Yuzvender Chahal is India’s main spinner in T20. But in the match against Pakistan, the Indian team gave a chance to Ravichandran Ashwin. The major reason for this was being a left-handed batsman in Pakistan’s middle order. Ashwin gave 23 runs in 3 overs but he did not get success. But in batting, he played the match winning shot and gave victory to the team.
