Sarfraz severely trolled by twitterati for ‘taking every match of WC as against India’
The high-voltage clash between arch-rivals India and Pakistan in the ICC WC 2019 is scheduled to happen in Manchester on June 16.
Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed said they would treat all matches in the ICC World Cup 2019 as a match against India. To be noted, Pakistan have never beaten their hard fought neighbors in a World Cup contest.
“For us all nine matches are important so we will take every match as a match against India,” he said.
“We have beaten India in a bigger event recently so we will have that advantage,” said Sarfraz, who eventually preferred his side termed as ‘underdogs’ in the big event rather than a favorite one.
The specific comment boomeranged Sarfraz – the Pakistani skipper is quite heavily trolled in the social media for the comparison.
Sarfraz aapki team ne Hamko Champions trophy final mai jarur haraya tha lekin wo past ban chuka hai. Ye team India world Cup mai double power se Attacking cricket khelegi aur bhagwan kare hamara team winner banega.

‘In a bigger event’? What’s bigger than the World Cup? ? Is he referring to the Champions Trophy Final?

What does he mean by recently?? As far as I know India beat Pakistan twice in Asia Cup.

Pakistan beats india in 2017 and India beats Pakistan in 2018 .
& If u play like that again you r going to lose by 9 wickets by us.
Recently!?@SarfarazA_54 I’m seeing that along with your fluent English your maths is going to give a competition to great Einstein.

Are they planning to lose every match in world cup? because pak has lost all of his 11 WC ODI?

Well said but you missed a word in between ?
We have beaten India “ONCE ” in a bigger event.
My advice don’t play every match as a match against India beacuse if you do the maximum no. Of matches you can win in the world cup will be 1.
Grow up and focus on your game kid !
