Shoaib Akhtar Calling Sarfraz as Railu Katta
Former Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Akhtar has declared Sarfaraz Ahmed a “brainless” captain after the green shirts suffered a humiliating defeat Sunday at Old Trafford. In a shocking post-match video with India, Shoaib expressed a nod to Sarfaraz decision to bat first despite knowing that Pakistan is weak in the run chase as we have seen this during Australia’s match but still we never learned from our mistake. The example was set when batting first Pakistan beat the hot favorite team at their home ground.
He supported what Prime Minister Imran Khan and Wasim Akram had previously suggested batting first, as bowling was Pakistan’s force. India set a gigantic target of 336 for Pakistan after being first batted. The bowlers were unable to make good use of cloudy conditions. Whereas The Indian openers played aggressively and scored freely. Rohit Sharma, who received a second life from neglected Pakistanis, reached a century.
Akhtar roasted Hassan Ali for his poor performance during the World Cup. Recalling his performance at the same venue at the 1999 World Cup, Akhtar said pacemakers need to give winning presentations. Akhtar lamented Babar Azam for idealizing Virat Kohli and not following his tactics on the ground. “If Kohli scores 25, 15 of his careers are made up of one and two, this is what makes him a quality player,” he added. “I don’t understand why people compare Babar to Kohli.” Commenting on Imam-ul-Haq’s performance, Akhtar said the opener has no technique at all. “Have you ever seen him playing a cover shot?” he asked.
