During this time, Rizwan, who was keeping wickets, took off his gloves and ran to catch the ball, then as soon as he threw the ball, it hit his own gloves. Which he had taken off and ran away.

On this the umpire added a total of 7 runs under penalty (2 runs escaped + 5 runs penalty). Since Rizwan’s throw hit his wicket-keeping gloves, these runs went directly to the account of Babar’s team Peshawar Zalmi.

Actually, the throw hit the gloves directly and as per the rules, the keeper cannot leave his gloves or any sports related item on the field. However, after this Rizwan was seen arguing with umpire Aleem Dar for a long time, but the umpire explained to him that all this happened within the rules.
