Rizwans want to use religion to cover bad performance, Shehzad alleged

Ahmed Shehzad alleged that Pakistani cricketers like Mohammad Rizwan are trying to cover up their poor performance by using religion.

A video of Rizwan's speech about the Pakistan team's performance in the T20 World Cup is circulating on social media. Rizwan said, 'I think every person is a messenger of two things. If he is a Muslim, he represents Islam wherever he goes in the world. Secondly, he is the goodwill ambassador of Pakistan. We don't care what people say.

Rizwan, however, also says that the criticism they are receiving is what they deserve. The Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman also mentioned that if one cannot tolerate criticism, one cannot succeed in the future. 2022 runner-up Pakistan failed to go past the first round to the Super Eight this time.

However, in a post on X, Shehzad made a long post based on Rizwan's words. "Some players are trying to cover up their poor performance in the World Cup by using religion and holding unnecessary press conferences, which is really disappointing," he said. When they admit to acting on the field, lying about fitness, where is the religion? Does religion teach us to deceive others and lie in the field?'

Shehzad also said that those who did not meet the expectations were excluded from the team, 'You are paid to perform on the field and you participate in factionalism in the team. Religion teaches us to do our duty, not to lie about suffering. Some spokespeople for these players want them to be given another chance. But why? It is the Pakistan team, not their home team, where they will play. If they want another chance, they can form their own team and play with their friends. But not in the Pakistan team.

PCB chairman Mohsin Naqvi mentioned 'surgery' after the disappointing performance in the World Cup. In that context, Shehzad said, "We will not let PCB chairman Mohsin Naqvi forget the major surgery he promised." Some players of the Pakistan team are now laughing at the words of the chairman. Because they don't care. But we will ensure that action is taken against these players so that the fans get answers. We have taken a stand and will not budge until the Pakistan team gets back on track.''

There was a buzz on social media about the return of Shehzad, who last played for the Pakistan national team in 2019. However, the batsman who scored the first century for Pakistan in international T20 did not get a team in the last PSL. After that he also retired from franchise based league in Pakistan.
