PAK vs WI: Babar Azam's 'ILLEGAL FIELDING' costs Pakistan five runs during 2nd ODI - WATCH


While his hopes of breaking into the record books with his fourth consecutive ODI century in the second ODI against the West Indies did not come true, Pakistan captain Babar Azam made his name in the news for enforcing a rarely used law of cricket. brought it. Babar’s “illegal fielding” cost Pakistan five runs in the match.

The Pakistan captain inadvertently gifted the visiting team five extra runs in the second ODI here on Friday. While this did not affect the outcome of the match as Pakistan won by a huge margin of 120 runs, it brought into consideration the law of “illegal fielding”.

In the 29th over of the West Indies innings, Babar Azam was seen taking a wicket-keeping glove from Mohammad Rizwan and used it to pick up a throw behind the stumps.

A report on the ICC’s official website stated that this was regarded as illegal fielding by the on-field umpires, as a result of which, five extra runs were added to West Indies’ total.

According to the report, Babar’s action on the field comes under Section 28.1 of the Laws of Cricket.

Regarding protective equipment, Rule 28.1 states, “No fielder, other than the wicket-keeper, shall be permitted to wear gloves or outside leg guards. Further, hand or finger protection may be worn only with the consent of the umpires.” “

A rare thing happened tonight. West Indies were awarded 5 penalty runs due to illegal fielding by Pakistan.

This is one of those rare situations that we don’t often see in cricket and it is certainly one that Azam would like to forget soon, the report said.

The incident did not have any serious impact on the match as Pakistan took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match ODI series thanks to the captain’s 77 runs and left-arm spinner Mohammad Nawaz’s 4/19 effort.
