Emerging Asia Cup Final 2023: Controversy Erupts Over Sai Sudharshan’s Wicket

Emerging Asia Cup Final 2023: In the exciting final match of the Emerging Asia Cup 2023, India A faced off against Pakistan A on Sunday (July 23). Pakistan emerged victorious, winning by 128 runs. However, the spotlight turned to a contentious moment involving India’s star batsman Sai Sudharshan.

Sai Sudharshan, who scored a century against Pakistan A in the group stage, couldn’t replicate his performance in the final. Pakistan A’s fast bowler Arshad Iqbal dismissed him. The delivery that led to Sudharshan’s dismissal became the center of attention on social media. Many users claimed that Iqbal’s ball was a “no ball,” as his foot seemed to have crossed the line (popping crease) during the delivery.

Despite the debate on social media, the decision came in favor of the bowler, and Sai Sudharshan was declared out. This controversial moment sparked mixed reactions among fans, with some insisting it was a clear no-ball, while others saw it as a close call. In the match, Pakistan A won the toss and chose to bat.

They scored 352 runs for 8 wickets in their 50 overs. Tyeb Tahir scored an impressive 108 runs, supported by Sahibzada Farhan with 65 runs, and Sam Ayyub with 59 runs. India A, chasing the target, managed to score 224 runs in 40 overs, leading to Pakistan A’s victory by 128 runs. Pakistan’s bowler Sufiyan Mukim took three wickets during the match.
