Haris recently discussed the recording while appearing on the well-known Pakistani program ‘Hasna Mana Hai’. Rauf responded that the shot “hurt” him when a supporter inquired about his initial reaction to the shot.

“Of course it hurt when that went for a six. I didn’t say anything, but it hurt me personally. I thought something wrong had happened,” said Harris Rauf.

“Anyone who knows cricket knows what kind of player he is. He’s played that shot now, I don’t think he can do that again. Shots like that are quite rare, you can’t hit them over and over again. His timing was perfect and it became a six. Rauf said.

With a match-winning effort of 82 runs in 53 balls, with 6 fours and 4 sixes, Virat Kohli saved India from defeat by Pakistan. Kohli hit two stunning sixes against Harris Rauf to help India win the match as they needed 28 runs in the last 8 balls.
