India defeated Pakistan by four wickets in a gripping ICC T20 World Cup 2022 match on Sunday in the final over, October 23 at the MCG. Even though India’s victory will be remembered, there was controversy when on-field umpire Rod Tucker called a waist-height no-ball from a full-toss thrown by spinner Mohammad Rizwan in the Pakistan final over the finish.
Even former Australian left-arm spinner Brad Hogg questioned the umpire’s ruling, which radically altered the course of the game, in addition to pace legend Shoaib Akhtar. The choice resulted in Virat Kohli being bowled on a free hit and a no-ball.

Babar Azam, the Pakistani captain, had no choice but to give the ball to Mohammad Nawaz since India required 16 runs from the last Final over. The strategy appeared to be successful as Nawaz dismissed a well-positioned Hardik Pandya and then kept Kohli and Dinesh Karthik at bay for the following three deliveries.
On the fourth pitch, Kohli exploded and hit a six off a full toss that the umpire ruled was a waist-height no-ball. Babar was furious that the judgment had not been reconsidered and he argued with the officials as a result, the drama continues till the last ball of this final over.

Virat was dismissed off a stunning Yorker on the free shot after Nawaz delivered a wide on the following ball in the Final over of Inning. The no-ball decision was upheld, though, and the hitters wisely raced three as the ball rolled off toward third.
This match went down to the wire, much as the two Asia Cup 2022 games between the Asian neighbors earlier this year, with Ravichandran Ashwin scoring the winning runs.
