Shoaib Akhtar had praised Team India and Rohit Sharma’s valiant efforts against England in recent T-20 series
The Hush Post: Several Pakistani cricket fans started trolling their country’s former fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar who had applauded the Indian cricket team and its opening batsman Rohit Sharma for their winning efforts against England in the recently concluded India-England Twenty-20 series that was won by India by 2-1.
India had won the third and last T-20 cricket match due to Rohit Sharma’s unbeaten century and Hardik Pandya’s haul of four wickets. The Indian team was chasing the target of 199 runs. Its opener Rohit Sharma scored 100 not out off 56 balls to lead India to an emphatic win over England.
Shoaib Akhtar had also praised the Pakistani team that had defeated Australia in the final of a tri-series, a report said.
The former Pakistan pacer had posted on his Twitter account: “Pakistan beats Australia in a thriller & now in decider Hindustan beats England comprehensively that goes to shows that subcontinent teams are so well equipped in shorter format ..But outstanding innings by Rohit Sharma..3 hundred in T20 is something else.”
But Shoaib Akhtar’s tweet didn’t go well with several Pakistan fans as they started trolling the former Pakistani fast bowler.
