Mohammad Hafeez’s off-spin has often been employed by Pakistan captains over the years to attack left-handed batsmen. A similar scenario developed during the clash against Bangladesh as well as skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed gave the new ball to Hafeez to bowl against the opponent’s opening pair.
In the midst of his short spell, the veteran spinner suffered a hilarious blooper when the ball slipped out of his hand during the bowling stride and looped ever so slowly towards Soumya Sarkar, who dispatched the full toss for a boundary on the leg-side.
The funny incident attracted the attention of International Cricket Council’s (ICC) Twitter handle who poked humor at Hafeez’s bowling gaffe. ICC made an animated video depicting Hafeez’s bizarre delivery traversing through the galaxy, that drew a lot of laughter from fans.
