In the ongoing test match between England and Pakistan, Sarfaraz Ahmed, the former skipper, was noted serving water to the batsmen on crease which caught spotlight at the moment and is going trending on twitter and other platforms as well.
People say the experienced player who won trophies for us shall not be serving or carrying drinks as it targets his dignity whereas, the sensible people find no offense.
Misbah ul Haq, the head coach-cum-chief selector of Pakistan Cricket team, has answered to all social media critics after they have made it trending on the social media. People also compare Sarfaraz with the former cricketers such as Misbah ul Haq, Ricky Ponting, and MS Dhoni who also used to carry drinks on the crease.
The chief selector himself disclosed that he used to do the work and once being a skipper, he was in the team as 12th man so it is not a matter to be ashamed.
Misbah ul Haq answers to social media critics on Sarfaraz carrying drinks: I also did it as a captain
“It is very common and I don’t think this was an issue for Sarfaraz either. Even I carried drinks for the team against Australia when I was captain but didn’t play that particular match in which I was the 12th man,” said Misbah.
Here come people with positive and negative mindset on the scenario:

On the contrary, the rest of the players have started enjoying every bit of Pakistan cricket that started on 5th August against the home-siders, England at Old Trafford.
The men in green have done their best so far as setting 326 in the first innings must have pressurized the hosts, the fast-bowlers also have got dominant over English talented batsmen. The bowlers have grabbed the batsmen such as Stokes, Root, Sibley, Burns, and Pope which has enhanced winning chances of Pakistan with England being at 159 on lunch (Pakistan leads by 167 runs at lunch, day 2).
