Pakistani Fans Will Never Humiliate Other Players Like Indians: Sarfaraz Ahmed

Former Australian captain Steve Smith and vice-captain David Warner were both booed by Indian supporters at the Oval when both teams met.

The matter was diffused by Indian skipper Virat Kohli, who gestured to the Indian supporters to show support instead of booing Steve Smith and David Warner, who were both banned for a ball-tampering case in 2018 against South Africa.

Later in the post-match, Virat Kohli then apologized to Smith and Warner on behalf of the Indian fans.

Here’s how the situation unfolded:

In a pre-match conference, a reporter asked:

What if Pakistan supporters boo Smith and Warner the way Indian supporters did at the Oval? Will you show the same gesture as Kohli?

To which Sarfaraz replied:

I don’t think Pakistan fans will react in such a manner. We are all cricket lovers and we support every cricketer which steps into the ground. This is why I don’t feel I will have to defend anyone.

This was a great response from the Pakistan captain as he took a jibe at the Indian fans for disrespecting the gentlemen’s game while simultaneously praising the Pakistan supporters for their continued support.

  • Pakistanis will instead attack players with assault rifles like they did to Sri Lankans in 2009.

  • Appreciate with your comments but what about people like Imam ul Haq misbehaving with Shane Watson.

    • What did he do? It was Watson who misbehaved but due to his white skin and your inferiority complex you will find the brown man at fault

      • arey bhai is pagal raza ke moo lagne ka faida nai hai chor do yar and I’m not even fan of Imam.

  • And we have already seen on social media how Pakistani fans were ridiculing Indian players. I believe Sarfaraz is overly optimistic about our people. The fact is people are the same everywhere in the world.
