Says, “Every captain in history has lost an important match. Sarfaraz Ahmed doesn’t deserve this.”
Islamabad (Pakistan Point News – 23rd June, 2019) Bollywood actor Riteish Deshmukh has extended support to Pakistani skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed after a video of a fan harassing him went viral on social media.
“This is harassment... for heaven’s sake he is with his child,” he added.
Sarfaraz, who was carrying his son, simply walked away at the question.
As the boy faced criticism, he then shared a video apologising for his abusive behaviour.
He said that he did not know the consequences of his remarks when he made the video. He also denied having uploaded the video, adding that he deleted it after apologising to Sarfaraz personally.
“I know you are all angry but I did not realise it would turn out like this,” he said.
Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed insists his team's World Cup dream is not over yet despite their "hurtful" defeat against bitter rivals India but social media is not ready to forgive Sarfaraz for his dismal performance.
