Sarfraz breaks his silence on fan’s abuse
Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed plead the fans to stop personal attacks and stay by their side after the disastrous defeat against India.
The tournament has not been going too well for Pakistan as they are sitting at 9th position with only 3 points. They are being criticized heavily for their performance and it has to go an extreme level as well.
A couple of days ago a random fan from Pakistan spotted Sarfraz Ahmed and insulted him by body shamming him and posted the video on social media. The video was very disgraceful and the fan had to apologize for the video later.
During the awkward encounter with the fan, Sarfraz’s son was also with him and the captain has said that the heavy criticism is affecting know you cannot stop anyone, their families too.
“I know you cannot stop anyone. Our fans are emotional and these same people lift us when we win. But if they feel sad on a defeat we also feel the same way. We feel it much more because we are playing for Pakistan.”
“Our families get affected. If someone is hitting, then pushing anyone that’s not good. So the request is to talk about cricket. Social media and media are not in our control. They are so big that you cannot stop them. Teams have lost before, they will lose again, but now with social media such big it gets unstoppable,” he added.
Sarfraz also urged the fans to criticize their performance, but without abusing them and their families.
“There should be no abusing, criticise our game. That’s not an issue. I have said before that cricket is such a game that it takes you high one day and then you fall the other day. I have always tried to keep myself at the same position. I am like I am before. I have been with people who have kept me humble and down to earth,” he concluded.
