Virender Sehwag identifies two factors that contributed to India’s loss against Pakistan in the Super 4 match

Pakistan won their match against India that took place at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on the penultimate ball of the game with five wickets in hand. Pakistan was attempting to score 182 runs.

On Sunday, Pakistan’s Super 4 match against India in the Asia Cup went down to the wire, and in the end, the team lead by Babar Azam came out on top to claim victory in the nail-biting competition. Pakistan won their match against India after reaching their target of 182 runs on the penultimate ball of their innings while still having five wickets in their possession.

Former India cricketer Virender Sehwag believes that his country’s loss to Pakistan was due to the wide deliveries produced by their bowlers as well as the catch of Asif Ali that was lost by Arshdeep Singh.

During the tight chase, in the 18th over, Ravi Bishnoi came close to getting the wicket of Asif Ali when the latter top-edged the ball to Arshdeep who was fielding at short thirdman. The Indian southpaw, however, missed the easy catch, which allowed Asif to survive and ultimately win the match with his 16-run cameo that he scored in eight balls.

On the other hand, the Indian bowlers as a group allowed for a total of 8 extra runs to be scored, 6 of which were caused by wides.

“I believe that the reason that India was defeated by Pakistan was because of the catch that was dropped by Arshdeep Singh as well as the wide deliveries that were delivered by Indian bowlers. India bowled an excessive number of wides “remarked Sehwag on Cricbuzz after the completion of the game.

“As a captain, I would want my bowler to get hit for runs but not surrender extra runs or extra balls,” said the former India opener. “I would want my bowler to get hit for runs but not concede extra runs or extra balls.”

In the Super 4 match between Pakistan and India, Pakistan were always in the hunt while trying to reach the target of 182 runs. Mohammad Rizwan’s knock of 71 runs off of 51 balls served as an anchor for the team, and Mohammad Nawaz’s cameo of 42 runs off of 20 balls was an important contribution to the team’s overall performance. Together, they were able to put on 73 runs for the third wicket, which allowed Pakistan to maintain their lead.

“Pakistan deserves the credit for this. They had a strong batting performance throughout the entire match “added Sehwag.
