Fakhar Zaman heard swearing: The Pakistani opening batsman was heard as swearing during the fifth ODI against South Africa.
During the fifth ODI of the ongoing Pakistan’s tour of South Africa at Cape Town, Pakistan opening batsman Fakhar Zaman was caught using cuss words on the stump mic while he was batting.
It all happened on the last delivery of the 12th over when the southpaw completely missed a Kagiso Rabada short delivery, ending up getting hit on the body. Zaman gave the impression of being deceived by the slow pace of the ball.
However, when it was displayed that the ball was bowled at a speed of 140 km/h, Zaman was left astonished. It was at this point in time that he used the cuss words during a conversation with his non-striker in Babar Azam.
