The semi-final game between Australia and Pakistan stayed the topic of fans’ discussion due to several reasons. One of them was David Warner smashing a six on a weird delivery by Mohammad Hafeez. The ball placed by Hazeez bounced twice and was ultimately given a no-ball but Warner went out of his way to send that ball for a six.
Various opinions came up on the same shot and former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir added that it was a pathetic display of the spirit of the game by the batter. However, now his teammate Adam Zampa has stepped up to add that though Gambhir’s take was interesting, what Warner did cannot be labeled as wrong.
“What a pathetic display of the spirit of the game by David Warner,” tweeted Gambhir earlier on his shot off Mohammad Hafeez.
“It’s an interesting take from Gautam Gambhir. It’s a pretty big effort from David Warner and I think he had every right to,” said Adam Zampa on the ABC Grandstand podcast.
Moving further in the conversation, Zampa was asked if he would opt for ‘Mankading’ a batter if he is backing too much. The spinner added that he hasn’t been ever in this situation and hopefully, it never happens in the future too.
Mankad’s an interesting one, I haven’t done it but I won’t say I won’t either: Adam Zampa
“It has never happened to me and I hope it never does (On being asked he would Mankad a batter). Mankad’s an interesting one. I haven’t done it but I won’t say I won’t either. Watch out if you are on the non-striker’s end,” Zampa added
Talking about the same semi-final game, Australia turned up with an amazing comeback to win the game by five wickets. Hasan Ali dropped a crucial catch of Matthew Wade, who then hit three sixes on the trot to finish the game in a quick span. Warner, who opted to hit Hafeez’s delivery for a six, walked out the field one run short of his half-century, without even being confirmed of his dismissal. He felt that he edged the ball while the replay clearly showed otherwise.
