Pakistan batsman Sharjeel Khan has lashed out at opener Fakhar Zaman for “not playing his natural game” at the World Cup.
Zaman was deemed as one of the players who could have a major impact at the World Cup, especially given how well he performed at the 2017 Champions Trophy in England.
However, the 29-year-old had a disappointing campaign as he finished with 186 runs in eight matches, which included a half-century, at an average of 23.25.
Fakhar is not playing his natural game I don’t know why

Zaman only scored 13 in Pakistan’s final World Cup group stage match against Bangladesh at Lord’s on Friday. Even though Pakistan won the match by 94 runs, it was not enough to get them into the World Cup semi-finals as they had to defeat Bangladesh by over 300 runs.
