Drawing flak after the loss to India, Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed has warned his teammates of further backlash at home if they fail to lift their game in the remaining matches of the ongoing World Cup.
Pakistani cricketers are facing strong criticism from both fans and former players after the 89-run defeat to India on Sunday.
With just three points from five games, Pakistan are at the second last position in the tournament table and Srfaraz has cautioned his teammates to be ready for the wrath of the public back home if the below-par performances continue.
"If anyone thinks that I will go home, then it is their idiocy. If God forbid something unfortunate happens then I won't be the only one going back home," Pakistani media outlet, 'thenews.com.pk', quoted Sarfraz as saying.
Sarfraz's captaincy was called "brainless" by former pacer Shoaib Akhtar.
The captain has urged the team to forget the loss against India and move on.
"Forget the bad performance and uplift the team for the remaining four matches," said Sarfaraz. Pakistan will next play South Africa on June 23 in London.
