Asia Cup 2023 IND vs PAK: Chance goes down! Rohit Sharma survives early dismissal

In a highly anticipated clash between cricketing giants at the Asia Cup 2023, India opted to bat first against arch-rivals Pakistan. The match started with a bang as Shaheen Afridi delivered a fiery ball in his first over to India’s captain, Rohit Sharma.

Afridi unleashed a searing delivery at 137 kilometers per hour, targeting Rohit’s pads. In response, Rohit displayed his class with a sublime flick shot. The ball took an uppiish trajectory, heading towards the square leg region.


Fielding at square leg, a Pakistani fielder exhibited tremendous athleticism and anticipation. He leaped to his left and managed to get both hands to the ball, giving the fans a moment of hope. However, in the high-pressure atmosphere of the match, he couldn’t hold on to the catch.

The opportunity slipped through Pakistan’s grasp, and Rohit Sharma survived the scare. The ball, despite the fielder’s valiant effort, found its way to the boundary ropes, registering a valuable four runs for India.
