WATCH : Collision leaves Shaheen and Usman wincing in pain


Pakistan dominated Ireland with the ball in their final match of the T20 World Cup 2024, restricting their European opponents to a meager XXX runs in 20 overs.

Shaheen Afridi and Imad Wasim spearheaded the attack, each claiming three wickets. However, a potential mishap almost saw Shaheen deny Imad a deserved wicket, adding to Pakistan cricket’s long list of comical on-field blunders.

During the 14th over, Mark Adair attempted to send the left-arm spinner’s delivery over cow corner but didn’t connect well, causing the ball to hang in the air.

As the ball descended, Shaheen Afridi and Usman Khan, coming in from long-on and midwicket respectively, converged with their eyes glued to the ball. Neither called for the catch, leading to a collision captured from a bird’s-eye view, making the crash inevitable.

In the end, Shaheen managed to hold onto the ball despite the collision, which left both players on the ground, clutching their heads in pain. As Mark walked off the field, Usman remained prone, requiring immediate attention from the physios.

The incident quickly became fodder for social media, with Twitter users flooding the platform with memes poking fun at the bizarre fielding display by the Men in Green.
