In the highly-anticipated IND vs PAK Asia Cup clash, Twitter was abuzz with astonishment as Haris Rauf, renowned for his blistering pace in the cricket world, unleashed a rocket of a delivery that literally split Shreyas Iyer’s cricket bat into two pieces. It was a jaw-dropping moment that left everyone in awe and forced Iyer to quickly switch to another bat.
The Asia Cup opener for India in 2023 has been nothing short of a nightmare, with the team losing three crucial wickets and managing a total of just 51 runs. While Shaheen Shah Afridi was causing havoc with his bowling, Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf were also proving to be formidable opponents, bowling with incredible accuracy and speed. Haris Rauf, in particular, grabbed the spotlight with an extraordinary delivery during the match, resulting in an unexpected turn of events.
Rauf was in the midst of his eighth over, and Shreyas Iyer was at the receiving end of the fourth delivery. The ball was pitched up just outside off-stump, and Iyer elegantly played a cover drive that should have earned him four runs. However, the sheer velocity of Rauf’s delivery caused it to strike the cue end of Iyer’s bat, shattering it into two pieces. This astonishing incident did not go unnoticed by Twitter users, who couldn’t contain their amazement at the incredible pace displayed by Haris Rauf.
In essence, it was a testament to Rauf’s fearsome pace and a moment that left cricket fans marveling at the sheer power and intensity of his bowling.
