Cricketer Sarfaraz Ahmed has left the internet users divided by asking his wife not to comment on his performance. The couple appeared recently on Nida Yasir’s show with their son, Abdullah Sarfaraz.
In response to a question, Khushbakht Sarfaraz said they don’t discuss cricket at home or discuss his performance. Commenting on the question, the cricketer narrated a conversation with his wife. He said that he went on tour to South Africa first time after his marriage where he failed to perform.
“As you know, South African bouncy conditions are always tricky for us, so I failed to score runs there,” said Sarfaraz Ahmed. “I was already disturbed with my performance and then Khushbakht asked me to focus on my performance. It irritated me a bit and I immediately told her to mind her own business,” he disclosed.
“Mera coach banne ki zaroorat nahi hai, mere pas already coaches hain [Don’t try to be my coach, I already have my coaches],” Sarfaraz was quoted saying to his wife on phone. Commenting on the conversation, Khushbakht said; “Thereafter, we didn’t talk about cricket ever.”
The small video clip from the interview went viral on social media. Since then, Sarfaraz Ahmed has been garnering mixed views from netizens. Some believe, that Sarfaraz Ahmed by snubbing his wife displayed characteristics of a rude and arrogant husband. Netizens added that he disrespected his wife. While others believed that outsiders do not need to comment on the personal life of the couple since both were laughing at the incident and are happy together.
In the same interview, Sarfaraz Ahmed also said that he does not want his son, Abdullah, to become a cricketer owing to his experiences. He said “Abdullah is passionate about playing cricket. But, I don’t want him to become a cricketer,” Sarfaraz said during an interview on a local channel.
“Being a cricketer, I suffered many things that I don’t want Abdullah to face. It’s human nature. Being a cricketer, I want my brother or son to be selected immediately. Otherwise, it hurts,” Sarfaraz concluded.
