The Asia Cup tournament has once again ignited the India-Pakistan rivalry. The two teams met recently in the second match of the tournament where India handed a defeat to Pakistan by six wickets. However, despite India’s brilliant performance in the tournament so far, former Pakistan cricketer Mohammad Hafeez isn’t impressed with Rohit Sharma’s captaincy.

The former all-rounder, who was talking to an expert panel on PTV Sports, commented on Sharma’s body language at the time of the toss against Pakistan and claimed that the Indian captain looked ‘weak, confused, and terrified.’

“Look at his expression. This is Rohit Sharma’s expression after the game got finished. And they won by 40 runs. His body language was weak when he came out to toss. I thought he was scared and confused. I can’t see Rohit Sharma whom I know. That Rohit Sharma who has played blinder of knocks,” said the 41-year-old.

Hafeez further said that Sharma will not be able to captain the side for long as his performance has gone down since he became the captain.

“I feel that it will be tough for Rohit to continue his captaincy. I don’t think he can hold on for too long. I know this from experience, that when you are a captain, there are several pressures on you. He can still perform good for India, but since he became captain, his [performance] has gradually gone down,” Hafeez added.

Meanwhile, the Indian team has qualified for the Super 4 stage of the tournament after defeating Hong Kong in their second match. Sri Lanka and Afghanistan are the other two teams to qualify from Group B. Pakistan is playing an important game against Hong Kong tonight. The winner of the competition will be the last team to advance to the next stage and the loser will be knocked out.

Hafeez’s comments didn’t go down well with the Indian fans who are bashing him for his remarks on social media. Here are some of the Tweets:
