New Delhi: There has been a lot of discussion around run-our on non-striker’s end. Some viral photos of a Pakistan cricketer is starting the topic with a new perspective.
In the photos, Mohammad Rizwan Jr. can be seen half-way through the pitch before the ball has been bowled. A twitter account named, Peter Della Penna shared a series of photos that questioned the game and how it could have affected Zimbabwe.
The images shows the scenes from the last ball of the game between Pakistan and Zimbabwe. Pakistan needed 3 runs in 1 ball, However, they feel short of one run at last and thus, lost the game.
Mohammad Wasim Jr. pictures go viral
But the twitter fan has questioned that what if Pakistan had completed the third run, what would be the mistake of Zimbabwe that they lose for ‘spirit of game?’
“Most fielders do it anyway, but extra smart by @SRazaB24 to pick the striker’s end for the final ball runout to beat Pakistan. Wasim had left the non-striker’s end before Evans leaped into his delivery stride, huge start. Raza’s best option for a runout was always striker’s end,” he wrote.
“Just imagine though if Pakistan had completed the second run to force a super over knowing Zimbabwe had a chance to nip that run in the bud (or at least force a different runner to come to the non striker’s end with 8 wickets down) before it started,” he added.
