In the ongoing Asia Cup 2023 Group A clash between India and Pakistan, the Men in Blue won the toss and opted to bat first. While the Indian top order fell like a pack of cards, Ishan Kishan played a crucial role to help the side cross the 200-run mark.


The 25-year-old played an anchoring role with his 82 off 81 deliveries, who was well supported by Hardik Pandya from the other end. However, it was Haris Rauf who claimed the in-form batter in the 38th over of the India inning. What was more shocking to see was Haris Raus giving a furious send off to the young Indian wicketkeeper-batter.


On the third delivery of the 38th over, the Pakistan pacer bowled a quick of a length delivery around off and Kishan pulled it off with Babar Azam completing a rather easy catch. Soon after this, Rauf was seen shouting and sending off the young batter.

With this wicket, Haris Rauf brought his third wicket while Shaheen Shah Afridi was the star with the ball for the Men in Green, scalping four wickets while giving only 25 runs in his eight overs.
