Pakistan, World No.1 in Twenty20 Internationals (T20I), suffered a humiliating series loss to Sri Lanka on wednesday. The fallout of the 3-0 whitewash for Pakistan has been severe. After the series loss, Pakistan head coach Misbah-Ul-Haq and skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed had to answer some serious questions. Now, a video has emerged where an angry fan is seen completely destroying a life-size cut-out of Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed. The fan is captured on the video, which has gone viral on Twitter, kicking and punching Sarfaraz’s cut-out, and finally disfiguring it.
Pakistan’s humiliation was all the more surprising as Sri Lanka’s — their first-ever Twenty20 series whitewash — was achieved despite missing 10 of thier top players, including regular Twenty20 skipper Lasith Malinga, who refused to tour Pakistan over security fears.
The visiting Sri Lankans were thrashed 2-0 in the one-day series but staged a remarkable comeback to hand Pakistan only their second T20I whitewash — the first one coming against England in United Arab Emirates in 2015.
