Get ready to face public wrath back home: Sarfaraz Ahmed
In the subsequent phase of their thumping defeat against India in Manchester on Sunday, Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed warned his teammates to get ready to face public wrath back home.
Pakistani cricketers are facing strong criticism from both fans and former players after the one sided affair against India that cost them the match with an 89-run defeat.
Skipper Sarfraz became the center of the storm, termed ‘brainless captain’ by former paceman Shoaib Akhter, has cautioned his teammates to lift their game in the upcoming matches.
The Pakistani news outlet Thenews.com.pk quoted Sarfraz saying,
“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.”
The website further reported that no senior players including coach Mickey Arthur made any comments on Sarfaraz’s speech.
Having just three points from five games, Pakistan rest at the bottom of the point table, just above Afghanistan.
Pakistan’s next opponent is South Africa on June 23 at the Lord’s, what would be a do or die game for them.
Pakistan need to win all their remaining matches and also get favorable results in other matches if they have to somehow make it to the final four.
