On Tuesday, The Board of Control for Cricket (BCCI) tweeted in support of Indian pacer Mohammed Shami. Shami was Subjected to scurrilous comments on social media after the defeat against Pakistan.
This was the first time that India is losing a T20 by 10 wickets and also the first time in history that Pakistan winning a T20 by 10 wickets. India’s defeat against Pakistan was unquestionably heart breaking for Indians. As soon as the game ended, cricket fans on social media started abusive commenting on Shami and captain Virat Kohli, criticizing his Captaincy.
Followed by this, the BCCI tweeted a picture of Mohammed Shami with Skipper Virat Kohli and said “Proud, Strong, Upward and onward.” which implied their support to Shami.
Indian former Cricketer Sachin Tendulkar came forward stating Shami’s hard-work and dedication for cricket. He said, “When we support #TeamIndia, we support every person who represents Team India. @MdShami11 is a committed, world-class bowler. He had an off day like any other sportsperson can have. I stand behind Shami & Team India,”
Apart From Sachin, former Cricketers – Virender Sehwag, V V S Laxman, Harbhajan, Mohammad Rizwan and also other political personas backed up Shami.
Anyhow India’s performance against Pakistan was pitiful. India needs to achieve their winning in the next match in order to be in the game, Lets hope India will succeed in their upcoming match against New Zealand and for Shami – a great come back!!
