Babar believes media exaggerated Sarfaraz's yawn

Babar believes media exaggerated Sarfaraz's yawn

Pakistan’s World Cup campaign came to a disappointing end after they found themselves unable to make it to the semi-finals due to an inferior net run-rate as compared to New Zealand. Pakistan’s start of the tournament was plagued by losses and inconsistency which reached its peak during the shambolic defeat to arch-rivals India.

During the match, a video clip of Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed yawning behind the stumps went viral over the internet sparking a lot of backlash for having a complacent attitude. Replying to these needless criticisms, star Pakistani batsman Babar Azam defended his captain claiming that the yawn is a natural thing and the incident was blown out of proportions.

“When you lose to India then things are going to be seen negatively. A yawn is natural, we all do it, there's nothing bad about it,” Babar told the press in Lahore after returning from England.
