Sarfraz Ahmed lashes out at Martin Guptill
Pakistan’s captain Sarfraz Ahmed is often known for his animated and aggressive behaviour on the field. He was involved in one such incident in a T20I match between Pakistan and New Zealand held in January this year.
It was the last match of the three-match series. Pakistan batted first and scored 181 runs from their quota of 20 overs. New Zealand started off to a flier and scored 51 runs in the powerplay.
In the final delivery of the powerplay, Martin Guptill hit a massive 108-meter six off Faheem Ashraf’s bowling. The ball went out of the ground and was lost. As a result a replacement ball was ordered to bring in by the umpires.
However Sarfraz was not happy with the replacement ball and decided to take the matter with a stand-in umpire. As Sarfraz was arguing, Guptill decided to interfere in the matter.
Guptill said, “Just tell him to f*****g pick a ten over old ball.” This comment agitated Sarfraz who yelled at Guptill saying, “I’m not talking to you, okay? F**k off.” The incident made a lot of rounds in the social media and everyone took it in a funny way.
