As India registered a record 302 runs win over Sri Lanka in ICC World Cup 2023, former Pakistani cricketer Hasan Raza claimed on Thursday (2nd November) that Indian bowlers are getting some different balls from ICC or BCCI.
On a Pakistani news channel, the former Pakistani cricketer said that ICC or BCCI is providing some special balls only to Indian bowlers due to which Indian bowlers are getting swing even on batting pitches. Hasan Raza also asserted that there should be an ‘inspection’ of balls provided by ICC.
“We are not able to understand batsmen playing against other teams but whenever India begins their bowling, bowlers like Shami and Siraj look like when we used to play Allan Donald and Makhaya Ntini in South Africa.
There used to be a shine on the ball on one side and there it used to seam and swing, but here I think even the ball is getting changed in second innings. The way ICC is giving these balls, or maybe the third umpire or BCCI is giving…I think these balls should be inspected,” Raza said.
Hasan Raza also alleged that decisions are being made in favour of India in the matter of DRS.
