After a miscommunication with Babar Azam results in a run-out, watch Imam-ul-Haq agitated reaction.
PAK vs WI 2nd ODI: After getting dismissed due to a mix-up with Babar Azam, Imam-ul-Haq smashed his bat on the ground in frustration.
Imam-ul-Haq and Babar Azam put up a 120-run stand to stabilize Pakistan after Fakhar Zaman’s early exit in the 2nd ODI against West Indies in Multan. But a mix-up meant the former had to return to the pavilion for a run-a-ball 72. In the 28th over, shortly after Babar had reached his half-century, Imam-ul-Haq hit the ball towards midwicket off Akeal Hosein and was out for a single. Babar, on the other hand, was caught ball-watching and was bored in the chase. So he sent his partner back after almost reaching the end. Imam, the striker, angrily smashed his bat on the ground and walked away as wicketkeeper Shai Hope removed the stumps before he could go to the crease.
Watch Imam-ul-enraged Haq react after a misunderstanding with Babar Azam results in his death.
Babar was removed from the delivery after he turned fifty.
Pakistan’s skipper was caught and bowled by Akeal Hosein after scoring 77 runs.
In the second ODI, both Babar and Imam-ul-Haq continued their dream form, scoring fifty or more for the sixth time in ODIs.
Babar came up short of Kumar Sangakkara’s world record of four consecutive ODI centuries.
His 103 in the first ODI, which helped Pakistan chase down 309 runs, was his second three-century run in the 50-over format. He is the first and only player in history to achieve this feat.
In the first match of the series, Imam-ul-Haq scored a half-century, while Mohammad Rizwan also scored a half-century.
