Shadab apologizes after Pakistan’s defeat at Asia Cup Finale


Star all-rounder Shadab Khan said he was ‘sorry’ after Pakistan succumbed to a thrashing defeat at the hands of Sri Lanka at the Asia Cup 2022 Finale in Dubai.
“Catches win matches. Sorry, I take responsibility for this loss,” dishearten Shadab tweeted as he dropped couple of vital catches during the Sri Lankan innings.
Sri Lanka on Sunday defeated Pakistan by 23 runs as the Green Shirts were restricted only to 147 while chasing down a competitive target of 171 runs.
This was the third time when Pakistan lost to Sri Lanka at the Asia Cup Final. The Sri Lankans were crowned Asian Champions for the highest seventh time.
“I let my team down,” said Shadab, who is often considered to be the best fielder in Pakistani side.
“Positives for team: Naseem Shah, Haris Rauf, Muhammad Nawaz and the entire bowling attack was great,” Shadab wrote however.
“Muhammad Rizwan fought hard. The entire team tried their best. Congratulations to Sri Lanka,” young all-rounder’s tweet read as.
