A huge talent gap was observed during India’s crushing win over Pakistan by a significant margin of 89 runs on DLS method. While India’s batting and bowling performances were far superior to Pakistan, another important aspect of their dominance was in the fielding department.
Pakistan were lackluster in the field, failing to prevent tight singles and easily giving away doubles to the Indian batsmen who cashed in on the opportunity to lay a strong platform.
Moreover, it seemed Pakistan players had taken the insurmountable pressure of an India-Pakistan clash to their heads as a ‘brain-fade’ from Fakhar Zaman left the Green Shirts ruing a golden opportunity to run out Rohit Sharma early in the innings. Fakhar threw the ball at the wrong end when Rohit was halfway down the pitch struggling to get back to the crease. Twitter did not hold back in trolling the flop Pakistani fielding display.
