The Men in Blue had their worst start when Shaheen Shah Afridi sent openers Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul back in the first 13 balls of the match. While Rohit was dismissed lbw off the fourth ball, Rahul fell when Afridi returned in the third over – the first ball when he was clean bowled by the fast bowler.
However, later replays showed that Afridi had crossed the line while bowling to KL and should have been declared a no ball. Rahul returned to the pavilion after scoring 3 runs in 8 balls and India were reduced to 6/2.
While the match continued and Virat Kohli scored 57 runs to help India post 151/7 in their 20 overs, fans took to social media to express their anger and disappointment at the umpires.
