Shaheen roasts Babar, Rizwan's haters in a satirical way
"I think it's time to get rid of kaptaan (captain) Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan," Shaheen said.
LAHORE (Web Desk) - After Pakistan won a recording-breaking match from England in the second T20 International of the seven-match series in Karachi on Thursday, Pakistan ace pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi took to social media to roast the haters of Pakistan captain Babar Azam and wicket-keeper batter Mohammad Rizwan.
"I think it’s time to get rid of kaptaan (captain) Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan. What selfish players. If they would have played well, the match could have been finished in 15 overs. They dragged it to last over," he quipped.
He sarcastically added, "Let’s make this a movement. No?"
While concluding his tweet, Shaheen said that he is "absolutely proud of this amazing Pakistan team".

Openers Azam and Rizwan put on an unbeaten 203-run partnership as Pakistan claimed a remarkable 10-wicket victory over England in the second T20 international in Karachi on Thursday.
Azam hammered 110 not out for his second T20I hundred while Rizwan scored an undefeated 88 as the pair completed a chase of 200 in 19.3 overs at a packed National Stadium.
With 1,929 runs together, the Azam-Rizwan partnership has become the most prolific in T20Is, beating Indian stars Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma’s record of 1,743 in 51 matches.
Azam and Rizwan have achieved the record in just 36 games.
The win levelled the seven-match series at 1-1 after England won the first game by six wickets, also in Karachi on Tuesday.
