After India’s win over formidable Australia in the Super 8 stage of the T20 World Cup 2024, former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq courted controversy by accusing India fast bowler Arshdeep Singh of ‘ball tampering’.

According to Inzamam, Arshdeep was getting reverse swing due to some ‘serious work on the ball’. In response, India captain Rohit Sharma rubbished any such accusation and even asked the critics to ‘open their minds’. 

Inzamam has now retorted to Rohit’s statement and cautioned him to not teach reverse-swing provided it was Pakistan who gave it to world cricket.

“We will definitely open our mind. First thing is that he (Rohit) has admitted that it’s happening. So it means what we observed is correct. Second thing, Rohit Sharma ko humein batane ki zarurat nahi padni chahiye ke reverse swing kis tarah hota hai, kitni dhoop mei hota hai, kis pitch pe hota hai. Jo sikhane wale hain unko nahi yeh cheez sikhaya karte (there is no need for Rohit to tell us how reverse swing happens, under how much sun, on what pitch; you don’t teach something to someone who actually taught it to the world). Tell him it’s not right to talk these things,” said Inzamam during a recent interaction.

India have reached the final of the marquee event after comprehensively defeating England in the second semifinal.
