Since most of the cricketers are active on Twitter, an exchange between them is quite common. At times, the war of words may continue even on the field. Needless to say, this wasn’t the case between Sarfaraz Ahmed and Mohammad Hafeez.
Both the players were involved in a war of words on Twitter recently. However, they didn’t take the rivalry to the field when both players played against each other in the ongoing sixth edition of the Pakistan Super League.

The entire saga unfolded when Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez congratulated Mohammad Rizwan for his performance and went on to term him as “shining star, glowing star”.
Hafeez’s tweet comes after Rizwan scored a century against South Africa in the T20I series. “Congratulations @iMRizwanPak on scoring T20 Hundred points symbol Clapping hands sign Thumbs up .
U r a Star shining star Glowing star Wonder how long u need to prove that u r NO1 wicketkeeper/Batsman in Pakistan in all formats of the game. Just asking,” Hafeez wrote.
Meanwhile, Sarfaraz Ahmed decided to reply to Hafeez’s posts on Twitter. “Hafeez bhai Sb, whoever has played for Pakistan from Imtiaz Ahmed, Wasim Bari, Tasleem Arif to Saleem Yousuf and from Moin Khan, Rashid Latif to Kamran Akmal and even Rizwan right now has always been number ONE for the country and have been respected accordingly.”
