Following Pakistan’s defeat in the t-20 series against Sri Lanka an angry fan was seen demolishing the Pakistani Captain’s hoarding in Karachi where the T20 series was hosted.
This series was iconic as this was the first time after 2009 that Pakistan had hosted Sri Lankan cricket team after the Lankan’s bus was attacked by militants in 2009.
Both fans and former cricketers have expressed their wrath and anger, with some demanding Sarfaraz’s removal from captaincy after they were whitewashed by a second string Sri Lankan side, that too in their own backyard.
Now, in a video going viral on social media, a fan in Pakistan can be seen punching and destroying a hoarding of Sarfaraz.
Pakistani journalist Saj Sadiq tweeted the video with the caption: “A fan not happy with Sarfaraz Ahmed after the 3-0 loss to Sri Lanka.”

Sadiq also informed that a resolution has been submitted in Punjab Assembly to remove Sarfaraz as captain. “The resolution stated Sarfaraz failed to perform his responsibility and isn’t capable of leading Pakistan and he should be immediately removed from captaincy,” he tweeted.
The Pakistani skipper had to face similar reaction after their loss to arch-rivals India in the 2019 World Cup in the UK. Pakistan suffered an embarrassing 89-run loss (D/L method) against India at the Old Trafford in Manchester on June 16.
After the defeat, the team went on to become the butt of all jokes with fans criticising the players’ fitness and their training regime.
