Following a dismal outing against arch-rivals India, Pakistan team captain, Sarfaraz Ahmed and the team have faced severe criticism for playing poor cricket.
Most of the cricket fans had taken to Twitter to slam brainless captaincy decisions by Sarfaraz amid speculations of rifts within the team.
With 4 more matches to go and the chances of making it to the semi-finals very slim, the team needs to perform at its absolute best (of course win all matches) and pray for the result of other matches to aid their journey.
Despite a humiliating defeat at the hands of India and other teams, Pakistan fans are still hopeful and are backing Sarfaraz and co to make it to the top 4. Even if they don’t, the fans need to see the fighting spirit which has been lacking in the first few games barring the match against England.
Hashtags, #IstandwithSarfaraz, and #BounceBackChampions are trending on Pakistani Twitter to show the love for the team. Here are some of the messages:
