Pakistani fast bowler, Hasan Ali, has taken to Twitter to respond to a Hindi news website which claimed that the pacer has been faking rib injury to take time off from cricket after his marriage.
The website, News State, published an article titled ‘Video: Fans of Hasan Ali who was out of the team after making a false excuse for breaking the rib, know what is the whole reason’. The outlet shared Hasan’s video of a ramp walk which had sparked some debate on social media.
The ramp walk at a fashion show earlier this week can be seen below:

Here’s the tweet by News State:
रैंप पर हसन अली को देखकर ऐसा नहीं लग रहा है कि उनकी पसलियां टूटी हुई हैं. लिहाजा पाकिस्तान के क्रिकेट फैंस को अब शक हो रहा है कि हसन अली ने पसली टूटने का झूठा बहाना बनाकर टीम से बाहर हैं.@RealHa55an @ICC @TheRealPCB #NewsState #hassanalihttps://t.co/NKTmTJBDLl

English translation of the tweet reads:
Seeing Hasan Ali on the ramp, it is not as if his ribs are broken. So Pakistan’s cricket fans are now in doubt that Hasan Ali is out of the team by making a false excuse for breaking the rib.
The 25-year-old cricketer thought fit to reply to the foolish claims in Hindi. Here’s what he said:
आपकी जानकारी के लिए बता देता हूं मैंने 60-70% रिकवर कर लिया है। मेरे फैंस मेरी चिंता करने के लिए काफी है लिहाज़ा आपको इसकी ज़रूरत नहीं… धन्यवाद🙏🏻 https://t.co/iDTLtGoJKT

It translates to this:
For your information, let me say that I have recovered 60-70%. My fans are enough to worry about me, so you don’t need to … thanks.
