Apart from the sheer mercurial cricket, the entertainment value Pakistani cricketers bring to the table also makes them meme favourites. Ahmed Shehzad was at the receiving end of backlash after he asked for a review despite clearly dropping the catch at deep mid-wicket region in the Pakistan Cup encounter.
The incident occurred during the last over of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa innings, after Shahzad dropped a catch of Khushdil Shah in the last over with 3 runs required off 4 balls. It was clear even in real time, that the ball has dropped the catch, but Shehzad asked the umpires to check it.
A similar kind of incident was replicated by Shehzad against Srilanka in a game at UAE a few years ago. Shehzad’s bizarre review earned him criticism from the Twitterati.
