When Afghanistan was devastated by Mohammed Shami’s team, defeated in WC 2019 with a hat-trick


New Delhi: After taking two consecutive wickets in two balls, Shami’s strength had now doubled. He ran into the run-up with full energy and bowled a quick, painful yorker. The ball, which came at the speed of the bullet, uprooted the stump of Mujeeb-ur-Rehman. India now had a couple of chances to be happy. First Shami’s hat-trick and second World Cup 2019 win over Afghanistan as it was also the last wicket. Today, three years of Shami’s dangerous over have been completed.

On 22 June 2019, Afghanistan’s challenge was in front of India at the Aegis Bowl ground in Southampton. The Indian team was in danger of defeat, but in the last over, Mohammed Shami gave a sigh of relief to crores of Indians by taking a hat-trick. In this low scoring match, India won the toss and scored 224 runs for the loss of eight wickets. After the brilliant game of the bowlers, the batsmen did not look like that. The match went into the last over, where Afghanistan needed 16 more runs and 7 wickets had also fallen.

Captain Kohli hands the ball to Shami. Mohammad Nabi made the match more exciting by hitting a four on the very first ball. However, the second ball was a dot. Now 12 runs were needed in four balls. A tremendous yorker at a speed of 142 km was put between the batsman Nabi’s legs. The lofted drive did not come off the bat well and Hardik Pandya took the catch. New batsman Aftab Alam was also welcomed with a fast yorker, this deadly ball blew his bails in the air. Afghanistan, having lost two consecutive wickets in two balls, now needed 12 runs in the last two balls to win. That means two consecutive sixes. But Shami also hit the tenth batsman Mujeeb-ur-Rahman with a yorker. Stumps scattered here and there, India won the match by 11 runs.
