    Was only a matter of time. Sarfraz really dug his own grave with those stupid remarks.

    WOw Aamir is peeved, now the earth is going to open up and swallow Sarfraz. Yes, what safari said was wrong, but it was the truth. Aamir could have handled it better instead of letting everyone know that is division in the team.

    The bowlers have every right to feel aggrieved if the captain and the batsmen aren’t going to take responsibility for their failures. Fair enough if our batsmen had actually put us in a winning position for the bowlers to finish the job but they never even got close to doing that so why throw the bowlers under the bus?

    If Sarfaraz had criticised the senior batsmen the same way, may be the AA battery of Asad and Azhar would have made more runs this series

    I do think bowlers didn't take it well, so this reaction from Amir after an outstanding day with ball as an unit. Now, ball is on AAS's court to response - so far Azhar has given a golden Unda, Asad has hidden under NWM & Sarfraz has dropped a catch while fielding - batting is to come.

    This!

    I cant believe i am saying this as an Amir fan but he has been a huge let down after his comeback. Its not just about his skills and ability rather his heart and effort.

    In one word: coward!

    Does not matter whether the captain or coach is right or wrong. As a team member, you donít go against them, especially captain, in the middle of a series. Wait for the series to get over or you to be sent home.

    This has been the bane of India or Pakistan cricket for long. If every player starts thinking he knows better, the team is doomed.

    Exactly! What was he supposed to say? The captain is correct we aren’t able to bowl fast enough.

    A captain like Sarfraz that doesn’t call out on himself and other batsmen letting the team down deserves this reply, if it was me I would have told them to question the batsmen!

    Lets be clear, Amir is a full-fledged member of the Pakistan side and has the same rights as any other member of the side.

    If we were so concerned about his past then he should not have been playing for Pakistan again.

    Now that he is in the team, he takes his place at the table as an equal, not as some sort of slave for the team.

    Back to the topic now...

    He looked a little off in the way he denied that question but what else was he supposed to say? Could he publicly deny or comment about what Sarfaraz said?

    A more professional answer would have been nice i.e. a smile on his face with its not a big deal or we spoke about it in the dressing room and its not a big deal or it was a team failure. You don't storm out of the press conference and give more fuel to the reporters.

    When someone who doesn’t make the team on merit is calling others out for not performing how do you expect them to respond? This is why your captain needs to play on merit not because he shouts at players and because he was U19 captain.

    What are you on about? He didnt storm out. He was smiling and deflected the question and then asked if they are done with the questions. Talk about making a mountain out of a molehill.

    Amir did nothing but avoided that question, even then people & journalists are trying to build an answer from his silence.

    Captain took on his bowlers after making a 50 and not shout at his senior batsman. I believe he has not made into the team on merit across all formats ever since he was made captain..

    Sarfraz started this mess. It's not our bowlers' job to clean up after him in the media, they do enough of that on the pitch to cover for our cowardly seniors.

    Sarfraz has full right to state whether bowlers or batsmen performed well or not. His own performance is beside the point and they are not too bad as a lower order batsman, and very good as a wicketkeeper . However we lost this series due to top batsmen.

    Settle down, Amir.
    120-130 range can still do the job in these SA pitches, but I think speed does come handy at times. Extra speed does make it harder.

    I am wondering if Pakistan has a media manager? Im pretty sure they have. Whilst I think Amir handled the issue well by offering a 'no comment', I would have imagined a good media manager anticipating this question and coached Amir about what to say, or rather checked with Amir. On the other hand, it is well possible that he did warn Amir about this question, and Amir wanted to offer a no comment!

    I don't see anything wrong here. Amir didn't speak out against his captain, he didn't push the blame on other players yet he also didn't take responsibility for the defeats since he's actually performed pretty recently on this tour.

    That's all more than can be said for Sarfraz.

    I see. I am surprised TBH. These days, with media competition, the home press are like hawks trying to pounce on any scoop available and it is always advisable to have a media manager i suppose. If you go to Eng and Aus, you would be pulled to give interviews to TMS and ABC Grandstand, on top of the usual match presentations. If I were Sarfaraz, I would not want my players to go and answer questions, without prior discussion, just to avoid controversy. This applies to Sarfaraz too I suppose. The press interaction after every day's play seems to be a bigger deal these days, than what actually happened in the field. Controversies are made out of things said off the field!

    Settle down, Amir.
    Yes he's still been Pakistan's leading wicket taker in the series with 11 wickets at an average of 23. He's go no reason to "settle down" - yet has every reason "to be peeved".

    In fact - not just him - the entire bowling line up have every right to peeved at the comments made by the captain. The batsmen - and specially Sarfraz himself - have not been upto scratch in recent time, however rather than owning up to that Sarfraz was shameless enough to go and blame the bowlers. Pathetic.

    Our batsmen have been bowled out for less than 200 on 4 out of 5 occasions in this Test series and Sarfraz is besharam enough to pin to blame on the bowlers Infront of world. Ridiculous.

    Sarfraz was probably just defending his buddies Azhar and Asad, who have been poor in the last year or so, and might need to be dropped.

    Gotta say - been very dissapointed with Sarfraz on and off the field. I've been hoping for a while that he would turn it around, however, he's shown no signs of doing that. I really do not think he has what it takes to handle the burden of being Test captain. I would be happy to give him a series or so without the burden of being captain, however, but then the question is if Sarfraz is not Test captain then who?

    Pretty much all the batsmen are barely hanging onto their test spots as it is & no bowler is a guarantee for the starting XI so makes things tricky

    All of our players need media training. They have no clue how to deal with the media. Our captain especially. Most teams use press conferences to send messages to their players and to the opposition.
