Danish Kaneria Says de Kock Bullied Fakhar Zaman

Former Pakistan spinner, Danish Kaneria, believes that the South Africa wicketkeeper-batsman, Quinton de Kock, “bullied” Fakhar Zaman in the second ODI.

Fakhar played a gem of a knock on Sunday, scoring a sensational 193 off 155 balls. His innings, which included 18 boundaries and 10 sixes, could not see Pakistan through, as Fakhar fell prey to ‘fake fielding’ by de Kock.

Referring to one of the most controversial run-outs, Kaneria said, de Kock gestured towards the bowling end when Fakhar was completing the run, which caused him to look behind towards Haris Rauf, who was running at the non-striker’s end.

The momentary lapse slowed Fakhar down, and he fell short of the crease when Aiden Markram’s direct throw hit the stumps.

“Quinton was smart and bullied Fakhar,” Kaneria said on Twitter, sharing a link to his YouTube channel where he explained the word ‘bullied.’

To the surprise of many, the International Cricket Council (ICC) cleared the former captain of his action without penalizing him for five matches as per the ‘fake fielding’ law.

The series is now tied at 1-1, with the decider to be held on Wednesday.
