NZ vs PAK: Watch - Mohammad Wasim Jr Castles Mark Chapman With A Stunner {PC: X}

Mohammad Wasim Jr has been a class apart in the ongoing match 35th of the ICC World Cup 2023. New Zealand and Pakistan are squaring off with each other at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore and the first innings so far has seen runs galore. 

While every Pakistan bowler has been taken to runs, Mohammad Wasim Jr has bowled exceptionally well. Apart from taking wickets he has been economical as well and has kept things tight, not allowing batters to hit him easily like the case with others. 

Mohammad Wasim Jr landed a crucial blow for his team during the fag end of innings. He removed dangerous Mark Chapman and pulled the things back for his team. He sent the southpaw packing in the 45th over of the innings and bagged his second wicket on a day, which hasn’t been good for pacers. 

Mohammad Wasim Jr bowled a good length ball that had a hint of reverse. The ball tailed away from the middle. Mark Chapman tried to pull but he misjudged the length. The ball skidded away and sneaked through him to rattle the stumps.
