Brag Hogg, a former Australian spinner, is one of the several people who have questioned the no-ball decision in the thrilling final over between Pakistan and India.
He also brought up the question of why the ball was not ruled dead after Virat Kohli was bowled in the final over of the match on a free hit.
When Kohli was bowled on a free hit, he asked, “Why was no ball reviewed, therefore how can it not be a dead ball?”
The two decisions have caused a lot of controversy because the game was decided by the thinnest of margins—Indian won by four wickets with one ball remaining in the innings.
Shoaib Akhtar, a former Pakistan Pacer, too voiced his disgust with the no-ball choice.
Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya, though, maintained composure to lead India to a stunning victory by four wickets over Pakistan in a tense match during the ICC T20 World Cup 2022.
Ravichandran Ashwin worked the ball over the mid-off fielder to snare the match-winning run for his side, and India finished at 160/6 in their allotted 20 Overs to complete the chase.
India’s run chase got off to a terrible start as they lost four wickets for just 31 runs in the seventh over.
After the slump, veteran Indian batsman Kohli and all-rounder Pandya put together an incredible 113-run partnership for the fifth wicket, which served as the foundation for the run chase.
Kohli, who took the initiative in that 78-ball partnership, reached his half-century in the 18th Over.
Then, to put Pakistan on the defensive, he faced up against one of Pakistan’s top death-over bowlers, Haris Rauf, for 15 runs in the 19th Over.
India needed just one run in the tense final delivery, and Ashwin kept his composure to work the ball over the in-ring fielder and secure India’s triumph.
With his masterful knock of 82 off only 53, Kohli led the way for India and remained unbeaten. He did so with the help of six boundaries and four sixes.
