India clinched a massive win against Pakistan in their first outing of the Asia Cup 2022. However, the victory did not come easily as Pakistan bowlers took the match to the last over. Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya clinched the match for the team with a six. Men in Blue’s second outing came against Hong Kong and it was the former who came out on top in the end.

However, in the second match too, there was a little fuss when Indian bowlers Avesh Khan and Arshdeep Singh started to leak runs. At one point in time, people started believing that Hong Kong might steal a win out of nowhere. But then, in the end, the Indian team won the match easily by forty runs.

While most of them had their eyes on Suryakumar Yadav for his stellar knock, there was one man from Pakistan who had his eyes fixed on Rohit Sharma. He analyzed the India-Hong Kong clash on PTV Sports and opined on the Indian skipper’s body language. The former Pakistan cricketer played a video of the Indian skipper leaving the field after the Hong Kong clash and said that he seemed under pressure.

The 42-year-old criticized the Indian opener and said that he needs to step down from captaincy. The Sargodha-born further added that the captaincy has affected Sharma’s game and highlighted that the captain looked lost. This comment did not go well with Indian fans who lashed out at the veteran pointing out his captaincy records.

He is facing a lot of difficulties,” Hafeez said in PTV Sports.

He further expressed his lamentation for the batter and backed him to get back to form at the earliest. Let’s take a look at some of the tweets that people replied Hafeez with:
