Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed is not catching a break when it comes to being heckled for his own performance and that of the team in the ongoing ICC World Cup 2019. The Men in Green are at the ninth spot in the points table just above the Afghanistan team that has not won a game, while Pakistan have a win over England in their kitty.

Sarfaraz’s reputation came crashing down when India defeated them on June 16 by 89 runs (DLS method). Everything that could go wrong, went wrong with the only positive being the toss of the coin he won. But there as well he chose to bowl first and handed the advantage to India on the golden platter. The keeper-captain was crucified for his team’s and his performance on social media. Even their national media and celebrities are taking pot shots at Sarfaraz, and now Kamaal R Khan, the Indian movie critic has also joined in.

Worst captain I have ever seen, says KRK

Sarfaraz Ahmed’s World Cup started off badly as West Indies bowled Pakistan out for 105 runs. But they bounced back by defeating hosts England as they failed to chase 348 runs despite Root and Buttler scoring centuries. However, two back to back losses against Australia and India has led to people making personal attacks on Sarfaraz as it was seen when a fan in a mall in England said some nasty things.

Kamaal R Khan is known for his critical review of Bollywood movies and for working in a couple of Hindi movies and in his tweet for Sarfaraz, he wrote, “I can say with 100% responsibility that Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed is the worst captain, I have even seen in my life. #ICCCricketWorldCup2019”

Sarfaraz also became a meme material when a photo of him yawning during the India-Pakistan match went viral and people called him everything from disinterested to lazy to ungodly things on Twitter. He had to clarify that he is human and yawning is not something that can be controlled by humans. “Yawning is a normal thing to do, I didn’t commit a sin. If people made money out of me yawning, that’s a good thing,” the Pakistan skipper said.
