In a thrilling Asia Cup Super Four match between Bangladesh and Pakistan, fast bowler Haris Rauf achieved a significant milestone by claiming his 50th ODI wicket. This memorable achievement came as Haris Rauf struck with a crucial dismissal, contributing to Bangladesh’s early batting woes.
With the match progressing at a brisk pace, Haris Rauf unleashed a delivery at a blistering speed of 140 kilometers per hour. The ball landed on a hard length, generating an angle that posed a challenge for the batsman. Mohammad Naim of Bangladesh attempted a pull shot but was late in executing it, resulting in a top-edge.
The ball soared into the air, and Haris Rauf wasted no time in calling for the catch. He moved swiftly to his left, positioned himself perfectly under the spiraling ball, and safely completed the caught-and-bowled dismissal. With this wicket, Haris Rauf reached the milestone of 50 wickets in ODI cricket, marking a significant achievement in his international career.
This dismissal was a crucial breakthrough for Pakistan, as Bangladesh had already lost two of their top-order batsmen. Moreover, Pakistan faced a setback when Naseem Shah had to leave the field due to an unfortunate injury during fielding at the third-man position. Haris Rauf’s impressive performance and milestone wicket will undoubtedly boost Pakistan’s confidence in their quest for victory in the Asia Cup Super Four encounter.
