India A vs Pakistan A clash in Emerging Asia Cup
Dhoni’s CSK all-rounder took 2 wickets in a single over
New Delhi. Whenever the cricket teams of India and Pakistan are face to face, then the whole world keeps an eye on that match, whether the senior team is playing or junior. One such high voltage match is being played in Colombo, Sri Lanka. India-A is facing Pakistan-A in the Emerging Asia Cup. In this match, India-A captain Yash Dhull won the toss and chose to bowl first and the start was as expected by the Indian fans and the team.
All-rounder Rajvardhan Hengargekar gave Pakistan-A not one, but two blows in the fourth over itself. On the second ball of the fourth over, Rajvardhan got Sam Ayub caught by Dhruv Jurel behind the wicket. This ball of Rajvardhan came out slightly outside the line of off stump. Sam Ayub tried to play a shot on it and the ball took the edge of his bat and went straight into the gloves of wicketkeeper Jurel. Sam could not even open the account. Please tell that Sam has played T20 for Pakistan and he is compared to Babar Azam.
Rajvardhan did not stop here and on 3rd ball he made Umar Yusuf walk too. Yusuf also could not open an account like Sam Ayyub. Sam Ayub could not even score 1 run even after playing 11 balls. It was a maiden over by Rajvardhan.
Please tell that Rajvardhan Hengagekar played for Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2023. However, Dhoni gave him a chance to play only 2 matches. In this, this all-rounder took 3 wickets. But in the Emerging Asia Cup, this all-rounder lived up to the team’s trust and gave Team India a great start by giving Pakistan two shocks in a single over.
