Brno Cricket Club players Riaz Afridi and Rahat Ali almost collided after the former came in front of the latter to complete a catch. The incident happened during Brno’s match against the Prague Tigers in the ECS Czechia T10. Brno pacer Satyajit Sengupta bowled a looping slower delivery to Tigers’ opener GM Hasanat, who mistimed his pull and the ball went high in the air. Rahat, who was deployed at mid-off, settled under the high ball to take the catch. However, Afridi came running in from mid-on and took the charge.
Rahat, however, was not impressed with Afridi’s effort, which almost saw the two players collide.
The incident is perfectly sums up the word “lack of trust” within the teammates. Even the commentator thought that Afridi doesn’t trust his captain Rahat and decided to grab the ball without making any call.
