The Melbourne Cricket Ground has been silenced, and Pakistan are ecstatic. Why shouldn't they be? Haris Rauf has taken out Rohit Sharma with a pacy delivery in the fifth stump channel. Then, Suryakumar Yadav too fell victim to the express quick. He looked to adjust last minute by swaying back and lapping the ball over the slip cordon but the bounce was steep and an edge went to Mohammad Rizwan behind the stumps. Indian batters seem to have some cold feet with the ball nipping around a bit. It has happened in the semi-finale of the 2019 WC, the first game of the 2021 T20 WC and today.
