Pakistanis were furious when they spotted the cricket team’s captain Sarfaraz Ahmed yawning on footage during a very crucial match in World Cup 2019 against India.
The video and screenshots have been circulating all-around social media making fun of the skipper’s fitness and seriousness.
The yawn has now become a viral meme and has even been used by brands to market their products!
However, sources have shared that Sarfaraz had sleepless nights before the Indo-Pak clash.
One of the reasons being is that he wanted to field Asif Ali and pacer Mohammad Hasnain in the high-profile match, however, the Chief Selector, Inzamam-ul-Haq had other plans.
The debate kept Captain Sarfaraz Ahmed as well as Coach Mickey Arthur and Inzamam on toes. The Skipper tirelessly tried to convince them to change their decision all-night long but his efforts went to vain.
Reportedly, Inzamam’s words carried more weight and the final decision was given in his favor which may just have cost Pakistan the match.
Sources have added that the Skipper confronted the men in green after the match and said he was aware of lobbying against him and would take the lobbyists with him if Pakistan loses this World Cup.
