Many of Pakistani cricket fans who seem to be too much depressed after Sunday’s embarrassing defeat against India, are constantly trolling their players. Some even went a few steps ahead to make personal and abusive remarks on the players.
However the ones who probably had to face the most heat from Pakistan supporters, was veteran batsman Shoaib Malik and his wife, ace Indian tennis player Sania Mirza.
A video of Shoaib Malik, his wife Sania Mirza and some Pakistan team players sitting at a shisha lounge went viral.
Angry over Pakistan’s defeat against India, fans criticized cricketers for enjoying in England just hours before the clash against the arch-rivals.
Malik though has claimed that the purported video is of June 13 and not before the night of the match.
“When will Pak media be accountable for their credibility by our courts? Having served my country for +20 years in international cricket, it’s sad that I have to clarify things related to my personal life. The videos are from 13th June and not 15th,” he tweeted.
On behalf of all athletes I would like to request media and people to maintain respect levels in regards to our families, who should not be dragged into petty discussions at will. It’s not a nice thing to do

Indian tennis superstar Sania Mirza and wife of Shoaib Malik has also reacted sharply to the viral video and expressed her anxiousness over the video being shot breaching their privacy.
