AUS vs PAK in ODI World Cup 2023:Haris Rauf’s Costly Over

AUS vs PAK in ODI World Cup 2023:In a high-octane clash between Australia and Pakistan in Bengaluru on Friday, 20th October, Pakistan’s fast bowler, Haris Rauf, faced a relentless onslaught by the Australian openers. Known as one of the fastest bowlers in the world, Rauf was hit for a staggering 24 runs in his very first over during the ODI World Cup 2023.

This unfortunate event marked the third most expensive over bowled by a Pakistan cricketer in the history of the ODI World Cup, with only Abdul Razzaq and Shoaib Akhtar ahead of him. Interestingly, both Razzaq and Akhtar earned their places in this list during the 2011 edition of the tournament.

Haris Rauf’s performance in the match against Australia is a reminder of the high stakes and fierce competition in the world of ODI cricket. While the bowler’s first over was costly, it is a testament to the challenging nature of the sport, where records are made and broken on the grandest stage.
