The New Zealand vs Pakistan T20I series has not started well for the men in green as they lost the 2nd T20I as well. The Kiwi batters started in great fashion as they put up a score of 194 on the board. The brilliant innings of 74 from Finn Allen and cameos from Kane Williamson and Mitchell Santner were enough to get them to that total. The Pakistan bowlers again had to face the onslaught of the New Zealand batters since once again they were really expensive. The only bowler who was looking threatening was Haris Rauf who ended with figures of 3/38 in 4 overs and played a major role in restricting the Kiwi’s under 200.
During this innings the Pakistan players were really frustrated on the field with their bowlers going for plenty of runs and their fielders making a lot of errors. This is probably the worst possible start for Shaheen Afridi after becoming the new T20I skipper for his country. These were moments that the Men in green would want to forget going further in this series. With three games still to go Pakistan still have a chance to come back in the series. Though another interesting moment was caught on camera as well featuring Pakistan batting all rounder Iftikhar Ahmed.
Iftikhar Ahmed’s angry reaction on fan
Iftikhar Ahmed is no doubt one of the first choice all rounders for Pakistan known for his incredible innings in the middle order and handy part time off spinners. The man was fielding on the boundary till a fan was calling him Chachu. Iftikhar evidently did not like the name he was called and showed his frustration straight away. Iftikhar made it clear saying not to call him by that name and was visibly really angry with that comment. This angry reaction was uploaded on social media and went viral straight away.

These are situations that should be avoided by the cricketers while playing the game since you have to focus on the game in front of you instead of the match. This incident should not even affect the experienced players like Iftikhar as well, who has been one of the big players for Pakistan. This is something that a sportsman should learn to ignore and concentrate on the game at hand. This is a lesson that should be learned from this man from any aspiring cricketer who wishes to represent his country.
