Pakistan opener Mohammed Rizwan who smashed 79 runs from 55 balls and helped his team to beat India in the first face off of T20 world cup 2021, reacted to the hatred spewed on Mohammed Shami, India bowler who is receiving support from all over the country after being subjected to online abuse due to his bowling performance. The Pakistan opener said that Shami is a star and one of the best bowlers in the world. He also requested people to use the game cricket to get united and not to divide.

After India lost the match against Pakistan, Indian pacer Mohammed Shami has been facing the wrath of cricket fans who belong to north part of the country. His Instagram posts are being flooded with negative comments based on his religion. The cricketer conceded 43 runs in the 3.5 overs he bowled which helped team Pakistan to break the streak of 12-0 against India in world cup tournaments. Former and current Indian players including Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag came in to support the pace bowler. Even Politicians joined the cricket fraternity to condemn the targeting of religious identity by social media trolls.

After losing the toss, India displayed a mediocre batting performance in the first innings. Both the openers failed to give a good start for India and Kohli managed to score a half century. He ended up scoring 57 runs from 49 balls and Pant’s 30 balls 39 helped team India to score 151 runs in the 20 overs they played.

Shaheen Afridi picked three main wickets of India which includes Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul. Pakistan openers Mohammed Rizwan and Babar Azam effortlessly chased the score down with 11 balls spare. Pakistan won India without losing a single wicket and broke the streak of 12-0 and made it as 12-1 as far as the world cup face offs of both the teams are concerned.
