Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed breaks silence ahead of clash against Australia
LONDON - Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed on Tuesday stated that Pakistani fans won’t boo shamed Australian batsman Steven Smith during the World Cup fixture scheduled to be played on June 12 in Taunton.
It is expected that Pakistani fans will turn out in large numbers and make bigger chunk of the crowd and there are fears that Pakistani fans might follow footprints of Indian fans who jeered Smith at Oval during India match.
Addressing a presser, Sarfraz stated that he doesn’t think that Pakistani fans will boo Steven Smith. He added, “Pakistani fans love cricket and they love the cricketers.”
Replying to a question, the skipper stated that green shirts will put their 5-0 whitewash by Australia behind them. Sarfraz told reporters that Pakistan were only focusing on tomorrow’s game. He said the morale of the team is very high and Pakistan will deliver its best against Australia.
Meanwhile, Sarfaraz vowed Pakistan will put their 5-0 whitewash by Australia in March behind them.
"Firstly, we can´t control the weather. It´s same for both teams. But if the match is short, definitely the planning is a change one," he said.
