Pakistani veteran Umpire Aleem Dar faces a worst blow
ISLAMABAD - Pakistani veteran Umpire Aleem Dar faces a worst blow In a match between Australia and New Zealand.
The veteran umpire Aleem Dar picked an injury on the third day of the test match between both the nations.
Already in the previous two days, Lochie Ferguson and Josh Hazlewood picked injuries and now with an umpire got injured.
With Australia dominating the kiwis at 111/1 with both Burns and Labuschagne well set, the runner ups of the ICC World cup needed a breakthrough in the match.
The fourth ball of 36th over, a slight miscommunication between Labuschagne and Burns – where the former sent the latter back to the bowler’s end – meant that Burns had to scamper back to the crease and put in a desperate dive to save his wicket.
The bowler Tim Southee sniffed the half-chance and instantly pounced on the ball, letting go an extremely powerful throw towards the stumps.
Whilst the throw did have power, it was anything but accurate.
