But Did Lahore Qalandars Sack Fakhar Zaman?

While Fakhar has made the announcement first; reality might as well be different. Fakhar hasn’t been in top form for quite a while now. He has lost his position in Pakistan’s playing eleven across formats. He hasn’t scored too many runs off late and so, there is every likelihood that the Qalandars’ management which is lead by Aaqib Javed decided to have a quite word with him before the next season, telling him to look beyond since the franchise had decided to do the same.

But, again this is all speculation and we hope Fawad Rana’s franchise provides more clarity in this regard.
