Umar Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad got their asses handed to them last night
In yesterday’s cricket match, Sri Lankan tigers managed to bag their first victory against Team Pakistan but the performance of some players ahemUmarAkmalahem ahemAhmedShehzadahem has gotten people’s attention in all the negative ways.
After another long hiatus, international cricket has finally came home with the Pakistan vs Sri Lanka series and fans are more than excited

But it seems like that happiness of cricket coming home is getting faded away due to the disappointing performance of Pakistani team, particularly two celebrity players. People are discussing the overall conduct of the Pakistani cricket team and are expressing concern over the exponential drop in their performance.
Umar Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad performed pathetically and fans are not here for it
Umar got out on duck once AGAIN and fans were extremely disheartened.
Umar broke actual records for getting out on duck by a Pakistani batsman in their T20 career
Umar Akmal has bagged 9️⃣ 🦆 in his T20 international career so far – the most for any Pakistan batsman 👀

Fans sarcastically labelled Akmal’s innings as a perfect comeback given his poor performance in the recent past

People expressed their anger by stating that Umar Akmal getting duck pe duck is a dangerous cricketer for his own team

The trademark Pakistani brutal trolling was on full display last night for Umar Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad
Umar Akmal goes on first ball again, his 27th duck in T20s

Alongside Umar Akmal’s disastrous duck, people also highlighted the equally bad performance of Ahmed Shehzad
Ahmed Shehzad failed to pick the googly: clean bowled.
Umar Akmal failed to pick the googly: Leg Before Wicket.
Sarfaraz Ahmed failed to pick the googly: Chopped On.

They said Umar Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad being in the team means our team is adamant in wanting to lose on the field
Hahahahahahaha God bless Umar Akmal & Ahmed Shehzad! The pick of the t20 batsmen we could have selected for today in a must-win situation! We are determined to obliterate our t20 run! #PakvSL

LOOOOL Ahmed Shehzad. I am just happy that even if we are going to lose this series, hopefully it'll be the end of this shit piece.

A few labelled Ahmed Shehzad’s entire career as a failure
Ahmed shehzad was a failure and still a failure…

People pointed out that Umar Akmal getting duck out in consecutive matches was also revealing the disastrous selection of Coach Misbah
— Shehzad Shams (@ShehzadShams) October 7, 2019
People urged the new chief selector Misbah and coach Misbah to share the selection criteria
Questions needs to be asked !! On what performances @captainmisbahpk selected akmal and shehzad !!! On what basis were they preffered over haris sohail !! He needs to select people on the basis of their performances only ! May be thats y we did better under mickey !! #PAKvSL
— Awais Abdullah (@awaisabdulla48) October 7, 2019
A few tried to defend Misbah by stating that his selection has finally ended the career of these two useless batsmen
— hamzakaleem (@hamzakaleem5) October 7, 2019
In years to come we'll all be like Misbah was a genius for bringing back Ukmal and Shehzad because of course he did it to show everyone how over they really are.

But really no one seems to be getting over Umar Akmal getting duck outs on his return to the team and ending his career in a spectacular humiliation
