Were playing in Sharjah or in Perth… Shadab got angry after the humiliating defeat, former captain lashed out
Afghanistan beat Pakistan for the first time
Shadab’s team was defeated by 6 wickets in the first T20
New Delhi. Afghanistan defeated Pakistan by 6 wickets on Friday in the first match of the 3 T20 series being played in UAE. For the first time in cricket, Afghanistan has defeated Pakistan in the field. Pakistanis are not tolerating the humiliating defeat of the team. Especially Captain Shadab Khan is on the target of the people. Former opener Salman Butt lashed out at Shadab and raised questions on his decisions.
Salman Butt said, 4 fast bowlers Ihsanullah, Zaman Khan, Faheem Ashraf and Naseem Shah were fed on the pitch made for spin bowling. This means that Shadab had absolutely no idea of the wicket. Despite playing so much cricket, Shadab kept getting the fast bowlers bowled continuously in the match. Instead of spinning himself, he bowled fast balls. When Najeeb Zadran came to bat, no slip was put for him.
‘No manners to read the pitch’
Former Pakistan captain Salman Butt said on his YouTube channel, Ihsanullah took two wickets in the very first over. Shadab should have shown understanding about his field placement at that time. He said, Afghanistan’s batsmen were struggling in front of Ihsanullah, but Shadab kept the fielders at the boundary.

Targeting Shadab, Salman Butt said, you chose this pitch for batting first. How much did you read the wicket? It means you didn’t have a clue. Butt further said, you went on this pitch with 4 fast bowlers. You were playing in Sharjah and not in Perth. Please tell that Shadab Khan won the toss and decided to bat first. However, his decision proved completely wrong and the Pakistan team could only score 92 runs in 20 overs losing 9 wickets. Afghanistan achieved the target in 17.5 overs with the loss of 4 wickets.
