Pakistan’s poor display in its 3-0 defeat to England’s second-string team in the one-day series was indefensible.

During the third ODI, there were a number of moments when the men in green let the match slip away from their grasp. One such incident that could have caused much embarassment to the visitors occured during England’s run-chase of 332.

Lewis Gregory, who was batting on 77 off 68 balls, hit one up in the air off Haris Rauf’s bowling. However, a mistimed shot resulted in a catching opportunity for wicket-keeper Sarfaraz Ahmed.

However, Shadab Khan, from mid-off came running towards the ball, resulting in confusion between the two before finally taking a good catch.

What followed was a hilarious mid-match moment of anger between the two.

Former Sri Lankan wicketkeeper-batsman Kumar Sangakkara expressed his views on the catch and said, “Sarfaraz Ahmed had no interest in going for that catch, yet Shadab Khan was being told off by Sarfaraz for taking a catch that should have been taken by the wicket-keeper.”

In the end, England chased down the target by 3 wickets and won the series by 3-0.
