In the fifth and final one-day international between Pakistan and New Zealand in Karachi, the home fans were heard addressing opener Shan Masood as ‘Parchi,’ which denotes that he was selected based on favouritism and recommendations.
Notably, the 33-year-old was a flop in the ODI series against the Kiwis.
Meanwhile, he is not the first player to come on the target of the supporters.
Khushdil Shah was given the same treatment against England in 2022. Later, Shah’s teammate Imam-ul-Haq took the issue to Twitter and urged the supporters to refrain from using these chants because they hurt a player’s mental health.
In the fifth and final ODI of the series, the visitors defeated the host nation. The 30-year-old Will Young looked sharp, scoring 87 runs off 91 balls. Later, captain Tom Latham managed 59 runs off 58 deliveries, and Mark Chapman added 43 runs. The Kiwis scored 299 runs and bowled the Men in Green on 252.
