Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed refuses to believe that India has lost the match against England to quit Pakistan from the semi-finals. He also said that it is incorrect to cast aspersion on the Indian skipper Virat Kohli.
Some of the former Pakistan Cricketers doubted that India did not give their best in the match against England, putting obstacles in the way of semi-finals.
“No, no, it is not right to say this. I don’t think India lost because of us. England played well to win,” – Sarfaraz told.
Sarfaraz also addressed a journalist in the press conference after she used the word ‘Bengalis’ while asking about the match against Bangladesh.
“Please don’t use this word. It could become an issue for you on social media. I think you should address them as Bangladesh. You are using an objectionable word,” the Pakistan skipper told the television reporter after she asked why the team management did not give Shoaib Malik a farewell in the match against the ‘Bengalis’.” – Sarfaraz added.
“Shoaib is our senior-most player and though he did not have a good World Cup, he has served the country a lot. His presence in the team was very good for all of us,” – Sarfaraz said.
Mallik has announced retirement from ODI’s after the World Cup and will now focus on only T20’s.
Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed spoke to media in Karachi after his side missed a semifinal spot on NNR despite finishing with 11 points with five victories.
