Pakistani captain Sarfaraz Ahmed at a post-match conference explained why he did not call for Curran’s runoff on the fourth international day (ODI) against England at Trent Bridge.
Sarfaraz said he did not choose to appeal because the bonds had already been withdrawn. “I thought the bonds were already out and that’s why I did not appeal to run out.”
Everything happened when the English batter Tom Curran was trying to complete the second race at the end of the front, the ball was thrown directly and the bails were evicted and lit up.
The captain also said that the team lost the game due to the lack of fielding. “It’s not just a person who makes mistakes,” he said. “It was the fielding that cost us the game.”
On Friday, England beat Pakistan through three windows, surviving a mid-range wobble to take an unchallenged 3-0 lead in the series. The hosts finished the victory after a tense final with three balls to spare.
The green shirts will play their fifth and last ODI in Leeds on Sunday.
