After India registered a smashing victory on Sunday against Pakistan, lot of fans on social media from the neighbouring country started trolling Sania Mirza for two major reasons — One, the tennis player was spotted with Shoaib Malik and other cricketers at a sheesha place having late-night party and junk food. And Two, because she mentioned in her reaction that they had a kid with them at the place.
While the visuals of them having sheesha were going viral, Sania Mirza had hit back at the trolls and said: "That’s the video you shot without asking us,disrespecting our privacy even though we had a child with us?& got told off for doing so,& u came up with this crap?FYI ‘outing’ was dinner & yes ppl are allowed to eat if they lose a match!Bunch of fools!Try better content nxt time" [sic]
And later actress Veena Malik took to her Twitter handle and said: "Sania, I am actually so worried for the kid. You guys took him to a sheesha place isn't it Hazardious? Also as far as I know Archie's is all about junk food which isn't good for athletes/Boys. You must know well as you are mother and athlete yourself?"
To this, Sania wrote: "Veena,I hav not taken my kid to a sheesha place. Not that it’s any of your or the rest of the world’s business cause I think I care bout my son a lot more than anyone else does :) secondly I am not Pakistan cricket team’s dietician nor am I their mother or principal or teacher."
She further added: "To know when they sleep,wake up and eat .. thank you for your concern though .. means a lot ✌🏽" [sic]
And concluded by saying: "Twitter cracks me up 😂 and some ppl for sure .. you guys really need other mediums of taking your frustrations out ..peace out guys ✌🏽 it’s break time 😉" [sic]
Here's the post -
Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed said that his team's defeat was disappointing and disheartening and admitted that the team was not doing well in all the three departments -- batting, bowling and fielding. Sarfaraz further added that the end of a good partnership and the inability to back up led to his team's 89-run loss at Old Trafford.
Openers Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam had stitched a 104-run stand for the second wicket, which placed Pakistan in a comfortable position before Kuldeep Yadav clean bowled Babar for 48. The wicket of Babar led to a flurry of wickets and Pakistan lost four wickets in a span of just 12 runs last night.
Rain interrupted Pakistan's innings after 35 overs. However, after almost 50 minutes, the match was curtailed to 40 overs and the run-chase was adjusted from 337 to 302 based on the Duckworth-Lewis (DLS) method. Pakistan needed 136 runs off just 30 balls but fell short by 89 runs.
India will next take on Afghanistan on June 22 at the Rose Bowl, while Pakistan will meet South Africa on June 23 at the Lord's.
