Star South Africa pace-bowling all-rounder Marco Jansen and Pakistan wicketkeeper-batter Mohammad Rizwan indulged in a heated argument with each other. The incident happened during the ongoing 26th match of the ODI World Cup 2023, between Pakistan and South Africa; both teams are taking on each other at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
It all occurred during the 7th over of the Pakistan innings when skipper Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan were there in the middle. Pakistan had scored 42 runs for the loss of two wickets in 6.5 overs.
The video of this incident is also making rounds on social media as soon as it was shared by a user on X (formerly Twitter).
Here’s the video when Marco Jansen and Mohammad Rizwan argued with each other:
Speaking of the action of the match at the time of filling this copy, Pakistan had scored 113 runs for the loss of 3 wickets in 22 overs, having skipper Babar Azam and senior all-rounder Iftikhar Ahmed on the individual scores of 38 and 14 runs, respectively. They are batting first after winning the toss.
Mohammad Rizwan got out off Gerald Coetzee on the individual score of 31, hitting 4 fours and a six. Marco Jansen has scalped two wickets so far for the Proteas, alongside one wicket picked by Gerald Coetzee.
Notably, this match is a ‘do-or-die’ for Babar Azam’s men as they have already lost 3 out of the 5 matches, they played so far in the tournament. Pakistan won against the Netherlands and Sri Lanka followed by three successive defeats against the hosts, India, five-time champions Australia and the lower-ranked Afghanistan.
Following the ongoing clash against South Africa, the men in green are yet to face Bangladesh, New Zealand and England in their upcoming three matches of the ongoing ODI World Cup 2023 campaign.
