KARACHI: Former Pakistan captain and Sindh wicket-keeper Sarfaraz Ahmed has once again taken the internet by the storm without uttering a single word but just by his gesture.
During the ongoing National T20 Cup match between Central Punjab and Sindh, Sarfaraz looked upset and stood behind the wickets with a grim face which many found unusual of him.
Known for his frankness and outspoken attitude on the field, even the commentators were in awe as they found Sarfaraz in an emotional and dejected state.
“Very Serious! That’s not the Sarfaraz that we know.” quipped the commentator. “I don’t like this Sarfaraz. Trust me, I like him speaking, chirping,”
The entire incident drew a significant response from cricket fans, many of whom attributed this sudden change in Sarfarz’s behaviour to his haplessness in finding a spot in the national team’s T20 World Cup squad.
@SarfarazA_54 as a huge fan of yours, I understand the pain you are feeling only you can understand that pain no one can,but Allah is watching everything ♥️💫
