Love has been pouring in for the Indian pace sensation Mohammed Shami from all over the cricket fraternity. Shami was trolled brutally on social media post India’s loss against Pakistan in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 league match. This was the first time India was handed a defeat against Pakistan in an ICC World Cup. 

Indian bowlers especially Mohammed Shami didn’t enjoy an ideal outing with the ball. Thus, many Indian fans made Shami the villain of India’s loss and subjected him to a lot of hate and criticism. Seeing the hatred, the cricket fraternity took a stand for the pace sensation as they posted their support of the right-arm quick. 

The latest to join the bandwagon is Pakistan’s decorated wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan. Rizwan took to his official Twitter handle to support Shami. The batter urged the fans to respect the cricket players as he believes that sports should bring everyone together and not divide them.

“The kind of pressure, struggles & sacrifices a player has to go through for his country & his people is immeasurable. @MdShami11 is a star & indeed of the best bowlers in the world. Please respect your stars. This game should bring people together & not divide ’em #Shami #PAKvIND”

Shami had a forgettable outing with the ball in India vs Pakistan clash. When Pakistan were set to chase 153, Shami leaked 43 runs in his 3.5 over. Adding to the misery, Shami went wicketless.
