Amid rumours of a rift in the Pakistan cricket team, Iftikhar Ahmed has seemingly confirmed the speculation with his recent social media activity.

The all-rounder liked a post on social media that criticized his teammate Imad Wasim after Pakistan’s loss to India in the T20 World Cup 2024. This action has fueled speculation about internal divisions within the team during the tournament.

In their match against India, Pakistan struggled to chase a modest target of 120 runs. Despite being in a strong position, needing just 48 runs off 48 balls, the Green Shirts lost the game.


Fakhar Zaman’s dismissal for 13 runs off eight deliveries in the 13th over brought Imad Wasim to the crease at No. 5. Imad, unfortunately, could not steer the team to victory, scoring 15 runs off 23 balls before being dismissed at the start of the final over.

Pakistan needed 18 runs off the last five deliveries, and although Naseem Shah hit a couple of boundaries, they ultimately fell short by six runs.

Iftikhar Ahmed Raises Eyebrows

After the defeat, a tweet mocking Imad Wasim’s batting performance caught the attention of Iftikhar Ahmed, who liked the post. This seemingly small gesture has sparked a wave of speculation about possible discontent and lack of unity within the team. Fans and analysts alike are concerned about the implications of such actions on team morale.

Notably, Iftikhar Ahmed is already under fire for his below-par performances recently and was subsequently dropped from the team for yesterday’s match against Canada.

The Babar Azam-led team managed to secure a comfortable seven-wicket victory against Canada in their third match. This win has kept their hopes alive for advancing in the tournament.

Pakistan’s troubles started early in the tournament with a loss to the USA in a Super Over. Following that match, several journalists reported rumours of the team being divided into three groups, which might explain their inconsistent performances.
