Opening batsman Fakhar Zaman was the next big thing in world cricket when he entered the Champions Trophy, hitting an all important century against arch rivals India in the final, giving Pakistan their first ever CT title.
But things have not been the same since then, as Zaman has not managed to hit anything significance since then, losing his form as well as facing technique issues.
Former Pakistan captain turned cricket critic, Aamir Sohail, believes that the issue with Zaman is his batting technique, which is getting exploited by the opposition.
“The reason… is rather simple and that is the fact that during the Champions Trophy, not many sides knew much about Fakhar. He was new and a surprise package for many opposing teams. Since then, the other teams have worked him out and come up with ways to neutralise his threat,” said Sohail, quoted PakPassion.
“In my opinion, it is his back-lift and how he crouches before deliveries is where all his problems stem from,” he added.
The former left-handed opening batsman, then slammed the PCB coaching staff for not providing adequate information to Zaman, who has failed to deal with the issue and is struggling with the bat.
