- India vs West Indies match affected due to rain
- Shubman Gill played an unbeaten innings of 98 runs off 98 balls.
- In the year 2015, even Shoaib Malik could not complete a century.
Shubman Gill : In the third and last match of the ODI series played between India and West Indies, Team India won, but India’s opener Shubman Gill played with it. He missed out on completing his century. When the game was stopped during the match, he did not even know that there would be no further play. When it started raining he had to score only two runs. It was expected that if the rain stopped, he would come out to bat again, but it did not happen. However, this is not the first time that this has happened to a player in One Day International. Earlier this incident has also happened with former Pakistan captain Shoaib Malik. Then the year was 2015 and Pakistan was facing Zimbabwe.
Similar incident happened with Shoaib Malik of Pakistan
In October 2015, the Pakistani team went on a tour of Zimbabwe under the captaincy of Azhar Ali. The second match of the one day series was being played. Batting first, Zimbabwe scored 276 runs for the loss of six wickets in the allotted 50 overs. That is, Pakistan had a target of 277 runs to win. Pakistan’s early wickets fell early, but Shoaib Malik was holding one end. First Shoaib Malik completed his half-century and after that was moving towards a century. It was 48 overs of Pakistan’s innings, after which the rain came. The umpires waited, but when the rain did not stop, Pakistan were declared won by five runs according to the Duckworth-Lewis rule. When the match ended, Shoaib Malik had scored 96 runs in 106 balls. But he was not given a chance to play further. While Zimbabwe’s team was happy after the match, the Pakistani players looked disheartened and disappointed.
India did not get full 40 overs to play
After the end of the match, Shoaib Malik had also said that this is not a good thing for cricket. It cannot be accepted, but the rule is the rule. Something similar happened in the third ODI match played between India and West Indies. Here also the umpire had said that the match would be of 40 overs, but before 40 overs could be done, rain came after 36 overs. After waiting for some time, India’s innings was ended there and Shubman Gill returned unbeaten on 98. If Shubman Gill had known in advance, he could have played faster, even if India had got one more over, he could have tried to complete his century, but it could not happen and Shubman Gill scored two more than his maiden ODI century. Been behind on the run.
