Lahore Qalandars pacer, Haris Rauf, was quite in a mood after his teammate, David Wiese, claimed the wicket of Islamabad United’s skipper, Shadab Khan, in yesterday’s clash.
After being given a target of 201 runs, none of the United batters scored enough runs that could have sealed them a comprehensive win.
Shadab was already fired up after his bowlers could not dismiss Qalandars and were handed over a mammoth target to chase.
The calm and composed Shadab did not respond to Rauf’s jeering and walked off the field.
During commentary, Simon Doull also expressed his opinion on Shadab’s send-off, “Shadab is being helped off the park. I am sure if that’s necessary. I don’t know whether they should find it funny or not. I know I wouldn’t, I can tell you that much.”
Qalandars easily defended their 201-run score against United, as their entire bowling attack proved quite destructive for the United batting line-up.
Wiese claimed three wickets in his spell, alongside Rashid Khan and Sikandar Raza, who claimed two wickets each.
After the post-match press conference, Haris Rauf clears his stance about the send-off he gave to Shadab after dismissal.
“It was a fun moment, and these things happen between friends,” Rauf said.
