Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed has issued a warning to his teammates that if something unfortunate happens, he won’t be going back home alone. There are reports of a feud between the Pakistan players and the dressing room atmosphere is not ideal. In fact, Mohammad Amir was also seen going back to the dressing room shaking his head after an argument with Pakistan manager Raza Kitchlew.
On the other hand, Sarfaraz Ahmed’s captaincy has come under the microscope after the 89 runs loss at the hands of arch-rivals India. In fact, there are reports doing the rounds that Sarfaraz Ahmed is likely to be sacked after the World Cup.
Sarfaraz Ahmed is under scrutiny.
Alleged reports suggest that Imam-ul-Haq, Imad Wasim & Wahab Riaz are revolting against Sarfaraz. Also, Sarfaraz has a heated argument with the team management after expressing his wish to play Hasnain and Asif against India.
Meanwhile, Sarfaraz Ahmed was seen yelling at Wahab Riaz who made a fumble in the field. It was not pretty. Plus, his continuous complaints to his bowlers and fielders aren’t helping.
Sarfaraz Ahmed now has asked his teammates to lift their game for the remaining four matches. Pakistan has their backs against the wall as they have won a solitary match out of the five games they have played.
This is not getting pretty.
“If anyone thinks that I will go home, then it is their idiocy. If God forbid something unfortunate happens, then I won’t be the only one going back home, Sarfaraz said.
“Forget the bad performance and uplift the team for the remaining four matches,” said Sarfaraz.
Pakistan has not turned out as a collective team in most of the matches they have played. Thus, they need to turn the tables quickly and the internal tension between the players and the captain is not helping the team.
Pakistan will play their next match against South Africa at Lord’s London on 23rd June and it would be a do or die affair for both teams.
