Heated Moment During T20 World Cup

As Azam Khan walked back to the pavilion, he faced verbal abuse from spectators over his golden duck dismissal during the USA vs. Pakistan T20 World Cup match.

Frustration in Dallas: Azam Khan

Pakistan’s wicketkeeper-batter, Azam Khan, found himself in a heated confrontation during the match against the USA at the Grand Prairie Stadium in Dallas on Thursday. His dismissal for a duck contributed to Pakistan’s surprising loss to the co-hosts in a game that was ultimately decided by a Super Over.

Performance Under Scrutiny

Already under fire for his recent performances in the series against England, Azam’s position in the T20 World Cup squad was being questioned. This match marked his second consecutive duck, following a five-ball duck against England. In this game, Azam was dismissed on his first ball by USA’s left-arm spinner, Nosthush Kenjige.

Intense Moment After Dismissal

As Azam Khan headed back to the pavilion, he was subjected to abuse from spectators in Dallas following his dismissal. The 25-year-old responded by charging towards a fan and giving him a death stare. A video captured him mouthing a few words, likely keeping his thoughts to himself, before continuing to the dressing room.

Key Moments in the Match

Azam’s dismissal occurred on the second-to-last ball of the 13th over of Pakistan’s innings, right after Kenjige broke the crucial 72-run partnership between captain Babar Azam and Shadab Khan. This pair had revived Pakistan from a precarious 26 for three in the fourth over to a more stable 98 for four in 12.4 overs. However, Shadab’s wicket triggered another collapse for the 2009 champions, who were ultimately limited to 159 for seven.

Home Team’s Strong Start

In response to the challenge, the home team initiated their innings with vigor, maintaining their momentum even after Steven Taylor’s departure in the sixth over.

Captain’s Heroics

Captain Monank Patel showcased his prowess by scoring a fifty, while Andries Gous and Aaron Jones remained composed under pressure, ensuring the chase stayed on course despite Pakistan’s attempts to rally.

Drama in the Super Over

During the Super Over, Mohammed Amir faced difficulties, conceding three wides and allowing Pakistan to give away seven extras, resulting in the USA setting a target of 13 runs.

Nerveless Performance

Saurabh Netravalkar delivered a flawless over for the home team, conceding just 13 runs and claiming a wicket, securing the USA’s second consecutive victory in the World Cup.
