Sarfaraz Ahmed Warns Teammates Of Backlash At Home

Written by Vishwas Gupta

Drawing flak after the loss to India, Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed has warned his teammates of further backlash at home if they fail to lift their game in the remaining matches of the ongoing World Cup.

Pakistani cricketers are facing strong criticism from both fans and former players after the 89-run defeat to India in the marquee World Cup clash here on Sunday. With just three points from five games, Pakistan are at the second last position in the tournament table.

“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,” Pakistani media outlet, ‘thenews.com.pk’, quoted Sarfaraz as saying.

The captain has urged the team to forget the loss against the neighbours and move on.

“Forget the bad performance and uplift the team for the remaining four matches,” said Sarfaraz.

Pakistan will next play South Africa on June 23 in London.
