Pakistan cricket team’s star all-rounder Shadab Khan found himself in an unexpected situation during a recent encounter with a fan in Cardiff. This moment showed how much pressure he's facing amidst a rough patch in form ahead of the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

The incident occurred during Shadab's visit to Cardiff, where England and Pakistan were to play the third T20I of their ongoing four-match T20I series, but it washed out due to heavy rain on May 28. This hammered their preparation for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024 in the West Indies and USA.

Shadab Khan's form woes exposed in awkward fan encounter 

Well, Shadab, who is known for his dynamic skills with both bat and ball, has been struggling for form lately, and he went wicketless in the last two T20Is against England and Ireland. Additionally, his economy rate has surged above 12 runs per over, raising concerns among fans ahead of the showpiece event.

Meanwhile, the recent encounter with the fan left Shadab uncomfortable yet embarrassed, as the female Pakistani supporter posed a direct question regarding his recent performances with the ball. As he is experiencing a dip in form ahead of the mega event, she expressed her disappointment at how the spinner is leaking runs in the ongoing T20I series against England.

In the video going viral on social media, a female fan can be seen asking Shadab: “Aap chakke kyun kha rahe hain? Form mein wapis aayein. Wicketein leni hai aapne (Why are you conceding sixes? Get your form back. You need to pick wickets).
