A Punjab minister has joined the list of naysayers who have doubted the national cricketers’ “innocence” and demand that heads must roll after the team’s disastrous performance at the T20 World Cup.

“While most of the players appear to be decent people on the outside, everyone knows what they are like on the inside and what they do,” Chaudhry Shafay Hussain, Punjab’s commerce minister, said at a press conference in Gujrat on Sunday.

Fans, former cricketers, and celebrities have been disappointed by the Pakistan team’s performance at the mega event.

Back-to-back losses to the USA and India broke many hearts in the cricket-loving nation as they demanded their team to at least put up a fight in matches.

Hussain was of the view that sports should not be taken seriously as victory or defeat is part of the game. He claimed that PCB Chairman Mohsin Naqvi knew about the team’s dynamics.

“There should be a change in the cricket team,” the minister said.
