“Salam Pakistan. Pakistan played the whole match with half the players and lost on the last ball with a four in a bunch. But in this match I have been shown a total superstar bowler Zaman Khan, who bowled really well even in high pressure. Win or lose game. It is a part of the team but the team played the whole competition despite it being half,” Siddiqui wrote in a post on Instagram in Urdu.
