ICC World Cup: “ICC, BCCI give suspicious balls to Mohammed Shami, Siraj,” former Pakistan batsman cries foul play – Magazine Creations

ICC World Cup 2023: India continues its winning streak in the World Cup as it registered its seventh successive win over Sri Lanka on Thursday. Team India’s spinners are playing well in this tournament as they have crushed powerful bowling attacks, but when it comes to the Indian pace attack, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj and Jasprit Bumrah are unbeatable so far. The Indian team is doing such a great job that even former Pakistani players have raised suspicions about foul play in matches.

Former Pakistan cricketer Hassan Raza claimed during a television interview that the ICC and BCCI favored Indian cricketers and questioned how the ball behaved differently during India’s innings. Hassan Raza even raised doubts about the DRS decision, which according to him was mostly in favor of India.

“We see that when they are batting, they are batting really well and suddenly the ball starts doing things when India bowl. There were 7-8 close calls from DRS which went their way. The way Siraj and Shami were swinging it at the catch.” It seemed that the ICC or the BCCI were giving them different and suspicious balls in the second half. A check must be made on the ball. There can also be an extra layer of coating on the ball for the swing,” Hassan Raza said while speaking to a channel called ABN.

“India had three players in place and even KL Rahul was standing tall behind the stumps. It meant that the ball had that solidity even after it was repeated so many times. Shami picked 5 wickets for about 18 runs, and Siraj got 3. I can’t imagine that “These are international batsmen and they are all going out of play. It is as if the ball that was used earlier disappears. So I think this has to be looked into,” the former cricketer added.

He is not new to disagreements

Notably, Hasan Raza is not new to controversies as the former cricketer was allegedly involved in an alleged spot-fixing case in 2018. He played for Pakistan as a batsman between 1996 and 2005 and remained part of the team for 7 Tests and 16 Tests. ODI matches.

The former Pakistani cricketers’ statements come at a time when the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has raised several issues with the ICC over how Pakistani players were treated unfairly on Indian soil. After the India-Pakistan match, Pakistan team manager Mickey Arthur remarked that it felt like a “BCCI event”.
