Watch fans’ funny request to Pakistani opening batsman: Fakhar Zaman was at the receiving end of a hilarious request from Pakistani fans.
During the second match of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 between West Indies and Pakistan at Trent Bridge, Pakistan opening batsman Fakhar Zaman found himself at the receiving end of a hilarious request from Pakistani fans.
It all happened during the second innings of the match when Zaman was fielding at the boundary. Some Pakistani fans kept calling out Zaman’s name from the stands. Just when he looked back, the fans requested him to bring some pakodas (snacks).
As far as the match was concerned, Pakistan started their World Cup campaign on a shambolic note after bundling down for 105 in 21.4 overs. On the back of veteran opening batsman Chris Gayle’s half-century, West Indies sealed the chase in the 14th over.
Zaman, who opened the batting with Imam-ul-Haq, ended up scoring a brisk 22 (16) with the help of two fours and a six. Pakistan’s dismal show saw them enticing severe criticism from both their fans and some illustrious former cricketers.
Pakistan are scheduled to play their next match against hosts England at the same venue tomorrow. In what is expected to be a stern test, Pakistan will have to put on display their ‘A’ game if they aim to stand a chance of winning the match against England.

#PakvsWI Don’t know how to react to such a batting performance. Back them or lambast them ! Was so frustrating to see them pack up against just one length.. short ball!!!!

My advice to the Pakistan team today is what I would tell my players before a match: Give your 100 percent, fight to the last ball and never let the fear of losing enter your mind, influence your strategy or play. Pakistan’s prayers and support are with Sarfaraz and the team.
