Sarfaraz Ahmed "Ahmed Shehzad and Umar Akmal are very talented players and have made spots in the team for themselves with performances. They are players who can win you matches when they stay at the crease. I wish them the best and hope they perform well for Pakistan" #Cricket

In the first T20 International, Sri Lanka upset Pakistan with a major 64 runs and took a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
After almost three years, Umar Akmal returned to T20I and set the record for the most ducks by being dismissed at the very first ball.
This is Umar Akmal's 26th Duck in T20 Cricket – MOST by a Pakistani in T20s surpassing his brother Kamran Akmal (25).

But wait, Umar Akmal was not the only cricketer disappointing fans. Ahmed Shehzad also returned to the national team after a year and he was bowled out on 4 runs over just 9 deliveries.
Pakistani cricket fans are immensely disappointed by the performances and are trolling them immensely, take a look!

The public is blaming the duo for the team’s failure!
Ye ahmed shehzad aur umer akmal ki hmesha apni performance hi kharab nahi hoti per aksar in ke presence ka aik aura hota hai. Aik manhoos aura jo poori team ke lehsan laga deta hai.

Here is how people reacted:
Best decision made by misbah to drop Shoaib Malik
Worst decision to bring Ahmad Shahzad and Umar Akmal back.

This is how Pakistanis are trolling Misbah-Ul-Haq for bringing back these two!
What a Selection Misbah 👏👏👏

Head Coach Misbah Ul Haq isn't happy with Chief selector Misbah Ul Haq why he selected Umar Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad and position of batting coach Misbah Ul Haq is in danger after poor display of batting by top order #PAKvSL pic.twitter.com/EhTgrh1kgV

Misbah was made chief selector but he has assumed the role of recycling manager. His efforts to rediscover Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad make no sense. Misbah should have taken few years to become chief selector. He is still behaving like a captain and team player.
