Pakistan all-rounder Iftikhar Ahmed’s ‘mystery video’ from World Cup match against Afghanistan has left social media baffled.
As the cricket world comes to senses following Pakistan’s embarrassing defeat against Afghanistan in a Cricket World Cup 2023 match on Monday, a video has emerged on social media that has left fans baffled. In the video, Pakistan all-rounder Iftikhar Ahmed could be seen talking to someone. But, fans failed to spot anyone in the frame that the Pakistan star could be talking to. The video has spread like wildfire on social media, leaving cricket lovers gobsmacked in an attempt to solve this mystery.
Many fans have shared the video across social media platforms, asking if anyone can explain who Iftikhar is talking to. But, there’s little evidence to solve the mystery. Here’s the video:
After the match, Iftikhar admitted that Pakistan’s spinners have been widely ineffective in the World Cup so far.
“We do have finger spinners in our team, including me and (Mohammad) Nawaz. Yes, the role of our spinners hasn’t been that effective here. But we will keep trying to improve. That’s all we can do,” Iftikhar said after the match to reporters.
“Frankly speaking, this was a wicket of 300-plus. But, their bowlers did trouble us. As a batting unit, we need to improve.”
Even fielding is something that has left the Pakistan team down this tournament.
“We made a lot of mistakes during our fielding, I admit. But, we need to improve; that’s the only option we have for now. If you are playing against a world-class side, you have to perform at a similar level across departments. Only then you will be able to survive.”
Pakistan now have to win their remaining games and also hope for some favourable results if they are to qualify for the semi-finals.
“We can definitely bounce back. There’s no doubt that we possess the abilities, and we have world-class players in our side.”
“We still have a lot of matches left. But we have to win them all to get into the top four,” Iftikhar signed off.
