Pakistan Super League (PSL) 22nd match is being played today between Quetta Gladiators and Karachi Kings and in this match Sarfaraz Ahmed has decided to rest West Indian all rounder Odean Smith and replace him with South Indian. African all-rounder Devine Pretorius has been included in the squad.
Despite not being part of the playing XI of Quetta Gladiators, Odean Smith’s name is among the top trends on Twitter.
Odean Smith’s name is trending on Twitter because he bowled the last over against Islamabad United yesterday in which the opposition needed nine runs.
Odean Smith hit two fours in the first three balls of his over and Islamabad United won the match by two wickets in three balls.
The West Indian all-rounder bowled 2.3 overs and conceded 40 runs against Islamabad United.
Social media users are not only criticizing Odin Smith for his poor performance, but also team captain Sarfaraz Ahmed is being subjected to hilarious memes for his poor selection.
“If you give me an Odean Smith and 10 pieces of wood, I will win you the PSL,” a Twitter user named Fakhro wrote in a humorous statement attributed to Sarfaraz Ahmed.
Odean Smith has taken six wickets in five ODI matches for the West Indies team, while he has scored a total of 144 runs in these matches.
Odean Smith played 24 T20 matches for West Indies in which he took 24 wickets and scored 162 runs each.
