T20 World Cup 2024: ‘The ball does not reverse swing so quickly…’, Inzamam-ul-Haq made a big allegation on Team India

YEARS

Inzamam said this during the review of the India-Australia match on News 24 Pakistan. To which another former cricketer of the panel, Salim Malik, also agreed. He said that Arshdeep Singh was getting reverse swing in the 15th over. The umpires should be careful because the ball started reverse swinging from the 15th over itself, which meant that the ball was getting ready by the 12th-13th over.

Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq levelled serious allegations against the Indian team after the final Super 8 match of the ongoing ICC Men’s T20 World Cup. Inzamam alleged that the ball was ‘made’ to reverse swing in the 15th over of the innings, which was bowled by pacer Arshdeep Singh. Arshdeep, who has performed tremendously for India in the tournament so far, has already taken 15 wickets in the competition and is second on the list of leading wicket-takers.

Inzamam said this during the review of the India-Australia match on News 24 Pakistan. To which Salim Malik, another former cricketer on the panel, also agreed. He said that Arshdeep Singh was getting reverse swing in the 15th over. The umpires should be careful because the ball started reverse swinging from the 15th over itself, which meant that the ball was getting ready by the 12th-13th over. He further said that I am saying this because if Pakistan had done this, there would have been an uproar. We know what reverse swing is. And if someone like Arshdeep is getting reverse swing in the 15th over, it means that some serious work has been done on the ball.

Malik, apparently alleging ball tampering, said that he was telling the former Pakistan captain to keep a watch on the close fielders if he had something in his hand. Inzamam said that he would have understood the same thing if Jasprit Bumrah was getting so much swing due to his action but not Arshdeep. Earlier in the tournament, former South Africa-USA cricketer Rusty Theron had accused Pakistan Cricket and Haris Rauf of dishonesty during the game against the co-hosts, in which they lost and eventually got knocked out of the tournament in the group stage itself.
