Twitter Users Got Crazy After Umpire Stops The Game In Pakistan
Umpire stops the game shockingly

In professional sports, unforeseen gaffes and chaotic situations are not uncommon, but when it comes to Pakistan, the frequency of such occurrences seems to soar to new heights.

On Saturday, the 30-yard circle was incorrectly marked by the grounds crew

The umpire had to make the correction while the game was still in progress. This brought the nation once more into the spotlight.

By winning the toss and requesting that New Zealand bat first, Pakistan began the first ODI between the two teams in Rawalpindi. Will Young was slated to face Naseem Shah in the opening over of the day/night match, with both teams fielding a second-string XI due to workload management and the absence of some major stars due to the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Due to his opponent’s brilliant straight drive, the 20-year-old bowler only gave up four runs while maintaining control of the ball, which allowed Chad Bowes to bat next against Ihsanullah Khan, a rookie fast bowler.

However, as the eagerly anticipated match was about to start, things took a little longer than expected for some hilarious reasons, which caused Pakistan Cricket to once again become the topic of conversation on social media for all the wrong reasons. Before Ihsanullah could start his run-up, two of the host nation’s on-field officials, Aleem Dar and Rashid Riaz, noticed something odd with the field.

Their suspicions were confirmed upon closer inspection because the white circular markers used to mark the 30-yard circle

The cricketers waited around while the off-field officials and groundsmen walked onto the field to re-measure the 30 yards and place the discs in their proper locations while a shoddy flaw in the fundamental design of the field was fixed.

The Twitterati took to social media to declare that only Pakistan was capable of accomplishing such extraordinary feats because they could not believe the unprecedented incident that was taking place on the field.

New Zealand while batting first at the 2nd ODI put up a target of 337 runs for the home side, however from the Pakistan side Haris Rauf shines by picking up 4 critical wickets against the black caps.
