Twitter reacts after Sarfaraz Ahmed’s cryptic tweet PHOTO COURTESY: Twitter

Pakistan’s former captain and wicketkeeper-batsman Sarfaraz Ahmed posted a cryptic tweet on the social media website, Twitter, which led to mixed response from users on the forum.

Sarfaraz was included in the Pakistan’s lineup for the final match of England tour, third T20I on Tuesday, as a replacement for wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan.

The Karachi-born missed a simple stumping chance of Moeen Ali, when he was on seven, which could have proven costly as the England all-rounder nearly took the game away from Pakistan.

This led to severe criticism on social media with fans showcasing their reservations over Sarfaraz’s wicketkeeping credentials.

Fortunately for Sarfaraz, a brilliant penultimate over from seamer Wahab Riaz (2-26) went for just three runs, including the wicket of Moeen, whose scored 61 off 33 balls.

His tweet seemed to indicate that he was not pleased to see the remarks about him but there was not confirmation in this regard.

Here is what Sarfaraz tweeted:


اتنا چھبنے لگا ہوں سب کو چھرا تو نہیں
جانی جتنا بتاتے وہ میرے بارے میں اتنا برا بھی نہیں ہوں

Mixed response


The addition of 61 runs wasnt done by anyone else but Sarfaraz Ahmed. Then you compare yourself with others & yet again a city based lobby will emerge. #ENGvsPAK

Our people really don’t have respect for national heroes do they?
Hope Saifi bhai realises online trolls can’t touch what he’s done for the country and stays strong.
He’s still our best T20 Keeper-bat option.

سرفراز احمد کی پاکستان کرکٹ کےلیے بہت خدمات ہیں،رضوان کی صورت میں ایک اور اچھا وکٹ کیپر ملنے کا یہ مطلب نہیں کہ انھیں مسلسل تنقید کا نشانہ بنایا جاتا رہے،ان کی ٹویٹ سے واضح ہے کہ موجودہ حالات میں وہ مایوسی کا شکار ہیں،ایسا نہیں ہونا چاہیے

Sarfaraz you are legend.. don't worry boy

Level of professionalism -

He gets extremely good salary, for playing Cricket -
But no one is allowed to criticise his bad performance -

If you cant face criticism then leave Cricket for some professional player and go back to reciting Naat Sharif, no criticism, at all.

No hate for Sarfaraz, you are legend and have done much already but totally hate this attitude. People who start making emotional notes when they could not perform is always problematic.

Accept your failure and get better.
