Pakistan’s fast bowler Hasan Ali dropped the catch of Matthew Wade in the 19th over in the semi-final match against Australia, after which he is being trolled a lot on social media. There is a lot of anger among Pakistani fans about Hasan, after which a lot of lewd comments were made about his being a Shia. Hassan’s Hindustani wife has also been cursed by the fans. After this some of the legendary cricketers of Pakistan have come out in his support. Fellow player Shadab Khan has described him as a champion player. Former captain Wasim Akram also called Hasan Ali’s trolling wrong. Apart from this, after the match, captain Babar Azam said in his speech without naming that no one will point fingers at anyone.
Shadab wrote on Twitter, ‘Hasan Ali you are a champion. The whole team is with you. To all the fans, every human goes through tough times, we are all human and can make mistakes. Don’t forget the opportunities Hassan gave you to celebrate, don’t make personal attacks. He is a match winner for Pakistan.
Wasim Akram said on A Sports, ‘I don’t want the whole country to fall behind poor Hasan Ali now. I have gone through it, Waqar Younis has gone through it. In other countries it’s just a game, the next day people say, well tried, bad luck, good luck next time, go ahead.
