Bowling coach Waqar Younis raised his concerns over South African wicket-keeper Quinton de Kock's confusing gesture where he tried to distract Pakistani batsman Fakhar Zaman — a move which ultimately led to Zaman's run-out after a remarkable innings.
Record-breaking inning. Simply Outstanding @FakharZamanLiveWhat about this cheeky giggle from Quinton tells you? #SAvPAK
The opening batsman was run out while attempting to take a second run as he slowed down, apparently assuming that the ball was heading towards the other end.
A TV replay showed that it was probably not just a misunderstanding and, in fact, the South African wicket-keeper Quinton de Kock made an attempt to distract Fakhar with his actions (suggesting the ball is going towards another end) which possibly convinced Fakhar that he was running towards a safe end.
