Hasan Ali apologises for costly drop that shattered Pak dream
Hasan Ali, who faced fans’ ire after dropping a crucial catch during Pakistan’s T20 World Cup semi-final against Australia, has apologised for his forgettable outing.
In the 19th over of the match, Ali dropped Matthew Wade off Shaheen Shah Afridi at deep mid-wicket and the error proved to be costly for Pakistan as the Australian then hit three consecutive sixes to take his side into the final by registering a five-wicket win in Dubai on Thursday. That ended Pakistan’s impressive run in the tournament.
Ali said he is more disappointed than anyone else and pledged to come back stronger from this bad phase of career.
This ended Pakistan's fabulous campaign in the tournament.
“I know you all are upset because my performance didn’t meet your expectations but not more disappointed than me. Don’t change your expectations from me. I want to serve Pakistan cricket at the highest level possible, so back to hard work.
“This patch will make me stronger. Thank you for all the messages, tweets, posts, calls and duas (prayers) — needed them,” Ali tweeted.
The Babar Azam-led side had entered the semi-final clash with five consecutive wins under the belt.
