New Delhi: The Indian cricket team’s unbeaten World Cups streak against Pakistan was broken during the T20 World Cup on Sunday. Pakistan defeated India by 10 wickets in the Group stage match of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021. Batting first, India scored 151/7. The Indian bowlers could not get a single Pakistani batsman out as openers Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam stitched an unbeaten 152-run stand to power their team to a historic win.
Sadly, India’s senior speedster Mohammed Shami was subjected to abuse on social media. Some ungrateful people took to Twitter and Instagram to pass on some derogatory comments against the senior speedster. Many former and current India players have even come out in support of Shami, calling him a champion player.
Now, Pakistan’s star batter Mohammad Rizwan took to Twitter to show his support for Shami as he urged fans to show respect to “one of the best bowlers in the world”.
He wrote,”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.”

Earlier, former India openers Virender Sehwag, Irfan Pathan, Yuzvendra Chahal and Harbhajan Singh also supported Shami by giving a befitting reply to those who made petty comments on him. The trolls did not even spare skipper Virat Kohli as he was too subjected to abuse on social media after India’s T20 WC loss against Pakistan.
