Shreyas Iyer’s encounter with Pakistan’s Haris Rauf took an intense turn when Rauf, frustrated by Iyer’s shot, angrily hurled the ball back towards him, igniting the crowd’s reaction of anger and disapproval.

In the ongoing India-Pakistan World Cup clash at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium, India’s captain Rohit Sharma carried forward his excellent form from the previous match against Afghanistan, providing India with a strong start in their pursuit of Pakistan’s 191.

An intriguing incident occurred during the 11th over when Shreyas Iyer faced Pakistan’s Haris Rauf. Rauf delivered a fullish ball outside off, and Iyer drove it back in his direction. In a moment of frustration, Rauf aggressively threw the ball back towards Shreyas. This incident not only drew the players’ attention but also of the already engaged crowd, leading to eruptions of both rage and boos.

In his first innings after recovering from dengue, Shubman Gill showcased promise with a brisk 16 off 11 balls, but fell to Shaheen Afridi. Kohli, too, appeared in good touch before being dismissed by Hasan Ali. This has left Rohit and Shreyas Iyer in the middle.

Earlier in the match, India staged a remarkable comeback in the middle overs to bowl Pakistan out for 191, with Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Mohammed Siraj, and Ravindra Jadeja claiming two wickets each. Pakistan’s innings crumbled from 155/2 to being all out for just 191.
