Board of cricket control in India showed sweet gesture to Mohammed Shami as he was subjected to online abuse after India’s loss against Pakistan on Sunday.
Indian pacer Mohammed Shami who is serving nation over the years came across online abuse and backlash after India-Pakistan match on Sunday in the ongoing T20 Worldcup. As soon as the match ended, fans on Instagram and Twitter passed derogatory statements on Shami. BCCI shared a picture of Shami with skipper Virat Kohli on Twitter and said “Proud, Strong, Upward and onward.”
Indian skipper Virat Kohli also saw some unruly fan behaviour and the trolls have also not been kind to him, as he was also criticised for his captaincy during the game.
On Monday, cricketers Sachin Tendulkar, Irfan Pathan, Yuzvendra Chahal and all-rounder Yusuf Pathan also condemned the online abuse against Shami.
