Many tales of mutual contention and controversy between the cricketers of India and Pakistan are famous. Exactly 23 years ago, on March 9, 1996, a match was being played between India and Pakistan teams at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore, against the World Cup. In the World Cup quarterfinal match, India had scored 287 runs in batting first.
For India, Navjoj Singh Sindhu scored 93, then Ajay Jadeja scored a 40-run knock in the last over. Jadeja had beaten Waqar Younis's balls, which became synonymous with panic for batsmen during that period.
In reply, Pakistan had lost Saeed Anwar's wicket quickly. After this, Amir Sohail took charge from one end. Sohail was batting with a bat and it seemed that the match would slip through India's hands. Venkatesh Prasad was in the 15th over of the match. On the fourth ball of the over, Sohail chawed. Sohail looked towards Prasad and pointed to the bat that your place is outside the boundary.
Generally speaking, Prasad did not respond to Sohail's attitude. He concentrated and quietly returned to his bowling run-up. Even on the next ball, Sohail wanted to repeat the same shot, but Prasad showed cleverness and brought the ball inside, causing Sohail to eat. This ball of Venkatesh Prasad blew off Sohail's off stump.
After this India got their hold on the match and kept the record of being invincible in the World Cup against Pakistan. This wicket is one of the historic moments of the World Cup and India-Pak conflict on the cricket field.
