Speaking of the video, the former Pakistan player, Zulqarnain Haider blasted all Pakistani players by saying that they did not read the ‘Namaz’ properly. That’s why it did not help them to win the final. He put an allegation on them that they only do ‘Namaz’ for the cameras. On the other hand, Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid were part of the England side.
