Start performing or face the axe, Sarfaraz warns team after India defeat

MANCHESTER (Monitoring Desk): Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed heavily criticised the teammates for their failure to give a substantive performance and warned of severe consequences in case if the team continues to fail on every front in the ongoing World Cup tournament, sources informed private channel.

The skipper warned the players that in case of a knock out from the tournament, he won’t be the only one to be relieved from duties, in a dressing room meeting called after the humiliating 89 runs defeat against India.

“It’s foolish to think that I will be the only one going home. God forbids if something bad happens with the team. I won’t be the only facing the burnt, many others will also be relieved,” the skipper told the team.

Coach Mickey Arthur and senior players remained silent during the Sarfaraz’s charged speech to the team. Meanwhile, the players listened to him with their heads hung low with shame.

Sarfaraz directed the team to forget the recent defeat and concentrate on the remaining four matches of the tournament.
