Not only this, but captain Sarfaraz Ahmed decided to hand over the ball to Asad Shafiq to open the bowling as well. Many fans have questioned the decision-making process in Sindh’s team management, calling out the team on their ‘blatant favoritism’.

Asad Shafiq, who is regarded purely as a Test batsman, is playing in the starting line-up of the premier domestic T20 competition in the country, and a young talented cricketer, Ahsan Ali is sitting on the sidelines. Fans feel that Asad Shafiq does not even deserve a place in the 16-member squad of  First XI, let alone in the playing XI.
