In the shape of opening batsman Fakhar Zaman, Pakistan got a modern-day cricketer who has a habit of going hard against the opposition right from the word go. However, the explosive batsman is currently going through a rough patch, particularly in T20Is where he is averaging under 10 this year.
All this generated a hostile reaction from the fans who are sitting eager to throw the Mardan born out of the national team. However, Fakhar has recently received the support of his former skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed who urged the fans to stay patient with a batsman who is a proper match-winner.
The wicket-keeper batsman wants the management to back Fakhar as he is going through a torrid time. Highlighting the glorious outings of Fakhar in many games, the Karachi born called him a key player and considered it a mistake to think about dropping him.
Sarfaraz further added that Fakhar is crucial for Pakistan as he gives them a brisk start which can later be capitalized by technicians like Babar Azam and Haris Sohail.
