Pakistan’s leader, Babar Azam, is upset that his team had to leave the Asia Cup 2023 early. After a crucial loss to Sri Lanka, Pakistan was kicked out of the event. This is said to have caused tensions within the team. Pakistani news outlets say that star players Babar Azam and Shaheen Afridi argued in the locker room. It happened after their final Super Four match on Thursday. Pakistan was the favorite going into the event, but they lost badly to India. Senior players like Shadab Khan and Fakhar Zaman didn’t play well, and Shaheen Shah Afridi couldn’t handle the ball well. Read out the reason behind the fight between Pakistan team down below.
Fight Between Pakistan Team, Babar and Shaheen Argue!
Babar Azam was very harsh in his comments. He told players who weren’t doing well that they had become lazy and that if they kept playing the same way, they would soon be forgotten.
On the other hand, Shaheen Afridi is said to have disagreed with Babar’s words and said that the captain should at least praise those who did well. The story says that Babar didn’t like being interrupted and returned the phone to Shaheen immediately. The situation worsened, and Pakistan’s best wicketkeeper-batsman, Mohammad Rizwan, had to step in to stop the fight.
In addition to the recent problems in the locker room, the Pakistan cricket team is having other big problems as they prepare for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup, which will be held in India from October 5 to November 19. So, several key Pakistani players have been hurt and won’t be able to play in the big event. Some of the players who have been hurt are Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf. Their presence at the event is still uncertain.
