India beat Pakistan by 5 wickets in Asia Cup
A Pakistani player cried over India’s loss
Hardik Pandya played an important role in India’s victory
New Delhi. India started the Asia Cup 2022 with a win. In the very first match, the match was with Pakistan. The Indian team led by Rohit Sharma won this high voltage match by 5 wickets. However, at one point the match seemed to be tilting towards Pakistan. But, on the last 12 balls, Hardik Pandya batted and turned the trend towards India and gave India a memorable victory by hitting a six in the last over.
Whenever there is a match between India and Pakistan, the players of both the teams put their lives to win. They don’t even care about the injury. In such a situation, when the team gets defeated, the player breaks down. Something similar happened with the debutant bowler Naseem Shah in the match against India. He got Pakistan off to a great start by dismissing KL Rahul for zero in the very first over. If Virat Kohli’s catch was not missed in the slip in this over, then the former Indian captain would have become the second victim of this bowler. But, despite good bowling, Naseem failed to give victory to Pakistan.
Naseem was seen crying after the match
In such a situation, when Naseem was coming out after the match, he was seen crying bitterly. During this, bowling coach Shaun Tait was seen explaining something to him. Its video is going viral on social media. In this match, batting first, Pakistan scored 147 runs in 20 overs. India achieved this target two balls ago by losing five wickets.
Naseem bowled even after being injured
Naseem was injured in this match. He was feeling a constant strain in the muscles. For this reason, he was also seen faltering on the field many times. But, still he bowled the full 4 overs of his quota. In the 18th over of the Indian innings, the problem of his feet increased. He was getting frequent cramps and he was having a lot of trouble in bowling. After bowling the fourth ball of this over, he started moaning in pain. In such a situation, the physio had to be called on the field. Naseem, however, completed his over.

His over proved to be a bit expensive. A total of 11 runs came in this and from this over the match turned in favor of India. India needed 21 runs in the last 12 balls, which was completed by Hardik and Karthik.
