During India’s Group B match against Pakistan in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup at Newlands in Cape Town, Nida Dar made headlines for bowling seven deliveries instead of the standard six in one over.
This significant umpiring error took place in the seventh over, as Nida Dar began her second spell. Jemimah Rodrigues, with a well-timed boundary shot, brought the score to 50 as Dar continued to roll her arm for the seventh delivery. The incident has left fans confused and raised questions about the umpire’s possible negligence.
The 7th delivery by Nida Dar went for a boundary
Nida Dar bowled seven deliveries instead of six in one over. This happened in the seventh over during the India vs Pakistan match. Jemimah Rodrigues hit a four during the seventh ball. This added important runs to India’s score. The young umpire Lauren Agenbag was there during the over. She is 26 years old and became the youngest umpire to work in a World Cup final last year.
Earlier, Pakistan chose to bat first and scored 149 for 4. Bismah Maroof and Ayesha Naseem made 81 runs for the fifth wicket. Maroof scored 68 not out and Naseem scored 43 not out. India’s left-arm spinner Radha Yadav was the best bowler with 2/21. Deepti Sharma and Pooja Vastrakar each got one wicket. India quickly got a breakthrough when Deepti Sharma dismissed Javeria Khan. Radha Yadav got another wicket, and Pooja Vastrakar got another after a smart review. Pakistan was reduced to 58 for 3 at the halfway point. Maroof was strong, but wickets fell around her. Ayesha Naseem arrived and scored easily.
India had a target of 150 ahead of them and they comfortably got home with Rodrigues being the top scorer. India’s top player, Smriti Mandhana was out of this game due to an injury.
