If there was a sensation in the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy, it was non-other than Fakhar Zaman. In the final showdown against India, his scintillating century secured him a household name in Pakistan. The premier batsman has skills written all over his name. He has proven his mettle time and again.

The top-order batsman was expected to shape the ordinary cricketing performance of the Men in Green over the years. But he has failed to stand up to the expectations on various occasions. Taking a glance at his statistics, Fakhar has managed to pile up a mere 800-odd run in 40 T20I matches. Moreover, his latest performance in a match against Zimbabwe speaks volumes about his depreciating form. The 30-year-old scored 21 runs while opening the innings.

Hence, the off-coloured T20 career makes him a perfect candidate to bag the tag of an over-rated career. The swashbuckler must be scratching his cricketing itch as he looks forward to taking guards against heavyweights in the upcoming days.
