Pakistan all-rounder Faheem Ashraf revealed that he and other players tease Islamabad United captain Shadab Khan after he scolds them.
Faheem noted that they only tease the 22-year-old when the players are in the hotel and “don’t react” on the pitch since Shadab is carrying out his duties as captain and isn’t taking on the role of a friend.
He added that emotions don’t flare up on the field since everything Shadab says and does benefits Islamabad.
“You must have seen that he scolds us on the ground but we don’t react because at that time he is our captain, not our friend,” he told Cricket Pakistan.
“Besides, when we come to the hotel we tease him about what he said to us on the field. We don’t do anything on the ground as whatever he does is for the team.”
Faheem was in fantastic form in the PSL as he took four wickets in four matches at an average of 20 and an economy rate of 6.15.
He also scored 49 runs at an average of 16.33 and a strike-rate of 158.06.
PSL 6 was postponed indefinitely on Thursday due to the coronavirus (COVID-19).
