Sarfraz Ahmed: Head coach wrote my apology tweet
By Mandeep Sharma
We all are aware of the most recent case of racism in the gentlemen's game, seeing it coming from a brown guy (In fact Twitterati called Sarfraz Ahmed 'Kaala') turned the whole world against him. Things got even worse when he tweeted an apology without any grammatical mistakes.
In the second ODI, seeing Proteas all-rounder Andile Phehlukwayo frustrated Sarfraz enough to come up with a racist comment.
If we go by The Jaali Express panel's discussion, he could have done better and sledging is ‘surely’ not his cup of tea. Sarfraz, who has been handed a four-match suspension, spoke to us regarding his punishment. However, we were more interested in knowing the details of the education programme that he is going to attend.
Considering Pakistan team's performance in post-match presentations, it was evident that the apology tweeted by him was written by someone well-read. After being asked about it, Sarfraz scratched his head and said: “Well, the education programme has nothing to do with my tweet. I didn't want my language skills to take all the limelight. So, I got that apology tweet written from our head coach Mickey Arthur."
"I don't know why they are making me sign up for an education programme,” said a seemingly frustrated Sarfraz. “Just because my undergrad college was Dawood University of Engineering & Technology doesn't mean I'm not educated," the 31-year-old added.
Followed by the failed sledging attempt, even Pakistani fans lost their cool and mocked him for reasons we can’t even mention. Strangely, some tweets suggested the skipper should learn sledging from the part-time India wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant.
It seems that fans do love the art of sledging, but being artistic enough is the tricky part!
