Inzamam-ul-Haq said Fakhar Zaman should not be wasted in the lower order and needs to bat higher up. To illustrate his point, he mentioned that if Pakistan had Rohit Sharma as a batsman they would never have batted him at number six because of this talent – which is something India does regularly with their players like Ravindra Jadeja or Hardik Pandya, or even Kohli. He concluded by saying “There are some who think I am very blunt but it’s my honesty.”
Legendary Pakistani captain Inzamam-ul Haq has come out publicly against batting superstar Fakhar Zaman low down in the lineups, describing how such treatment wastes a player.
“When Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan were playing well, they sent Sohaib Maqsood instead of Fakhar Zaman when a wicket fell. Fakhar was an opener and if you push him to number five or six, where he has to face spinners, then he will be completely wasted.”
