New Delhi. It is often seen on the cricket field that players try to copy the shot. Although some make a signature shot and their identity starts being recognized by the same shot, at the same time, some invent. In this list, there is also the Scoop Shot of Sri Lankan legend Tillakaratne Dilshan. Team India captain Virat Kohli, England star Jason Roy and former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni also kept on putting similar shots. Now a similar attempt was made in the match of T20 World Cup-2021, but Bangladeshi cricketer Mehdi Hasan failed and was caught and returned to the pavilion.
Bangladesh captain Mahmudullah won the toss in this match and decided to bat first. However, the team’s batsmen could not perform anything special and could score only 124 runs in 20 overs for the loss of 9 wickets. Mushfiqur Rahim was the top scorer who hit 3 fours in his innings of 24 runs in 30 balls. England’s Tymal Mills took 3 wickets for 27 runs.
Mills took the wicket of Mehdi Hassan, who was caught out for playing a scoop shot. Mehdi Hasan tried to send the first ball of the 18th over of the innings with the help of a scoop shot, but was caught by Chris Woakes at short fine leg. He hit 2 fours in his innings of 10 balls.
Its video has been shared by ICC on Instagram, which has been liked by more than 10 thousand people within an hour. It is seen in the video how Mehdi Hasan sits down to play the shot but Mills’ slow ball reaches straight into the hands of the fielder. Mills expresses happiness after taking the wicket.
