Sarfaraz Ahmed Lashes Out At Certain Players For Lobbying Against His Captaincy

Earlier reports of groupings within the national cricket team have been gaining traction day by day. The news was first revealed by a person close to the Pakistan cricket team, Raju Jamil,  and now it seems like we have confirmation of this trend by a senior member of the team.

According to Cricket Pakistan, captain Sarfaraz Ahmed is not happy with players like Imad Wasim, Wahab Riaz, Babar Azam, Imam-ul-Haq and Shoaib Malik. Sources say that these players have underperformed intentionally in order to oust Sarfaraz Ahmed.

The 32-year-old captain accused the above-mentioned players of not giving their best, choosing instead to malign his captaincy. The captain claims that the incident involving these players occurred in the dressing room, following the team’s crushing defeat against India.

Lobby in the Team

The lobby within the team allegedly aims to replace Sarfaraz Ahmed with Imad Wasim as the captain after the World Cup.

The Head Coach, Mickey Arthur was also present in the dressing room as Sarfaraz lashed out at these players. However, he decided to limit his words to cricketing matters, sources further revealed.

The same group, including Shoaib Malik, Wahab Riaz, and Imam-ul-Haq, was seen in a Sheesha cafe prior to the encounter against India, which raises eyebrows.

Is there something cooking in the Pakistan team? The reports certainly suggest so. What are your thoughts on the matter? Let us know in the comments section.


  • Kiya karsaty hain! Pakistan main aisy he kaam karwana janty hain lough agar na sunu inki tou idaray ho ya country kisi ka ni sochty.. sirf captain he change karna tha tou Ind vs Pak main he sab kuch dekhana tha? Shame on such a disgusting mentality. Agree with Sarfaraz he should take them along with em!

    • Lies, all lies. These are just speculations aimed at our team by people to earn fame. If Malik and his group want to abolish Sarfraz’s captaincy, will they not perform better to compete against him? If they are not performing up to the requirements then it is their own loss. They will be up to the mark of not making their position in the Playing XI, and mark my words that no one who worked for years to come at this stage, wants his hardwork to be washed away. The players are just making groups as normal friends do but this doesn’t mean that they are against Sarfraz or do not abide by the captain’s orders. Rubbish!!!

  • Well the entire team including Sarfraz isn’t performing. However Imad, when given chance is performing from few innings. Having an healthy average of 38 if I’m not wrong and a strike rate above 100 down the order isn’t bad though. And it’s visible that there’s some sort of lobbying in the team however can’t say anything untill we get an authentic news regarding this matter.

  • Imad and others are the reason why Sarfraz is pregnant, right? Allah se daro. Look at his tummy and fitness. Babar, Fakhar, Amir are the only 3 actually playing in this tournament. Others should be fired including Shoaib and parchi.

  • Wot sarfraz is doing as a player is very clear aswell. If not captain, i dnt see his place in Pakistan team as a batsman. He made a wrong decision by inviting India to bat and now he is just defending his wrong decision by lobbying. Where was this lobby in CT2017??

  • With no concrete sources or any solid information.. This report can only be termed as a fairy tale. A pen is mightier than the sword. Responsible journalism is an almost extinct thing in Pakistan, look it up sometime.

  • If Justice Qayyum commission report would be published, the convicted players would not the member of PCB committees today as heard , the players like shoib malik, wahab, imam ul haq and imad could not dare to cheat Pakistan and Pakistan team’s captain Sarfarz whose achievements are champions trophy and lift the team to the top in t-20 . Did shoib akhtar do so in main events for pakistan?

  • Assalaam-O-Alaikum,
    It is very unfortunate to see that their is lobbying going on against Sarfaraz at the cost of country’s prestige, for the ones involved in their personal interest. In future the team members should unite themselves against their rivalry team.May Allah give them some ” Aqul “.
