Pakistan defeating India by 10 wickets in the T20 World Cup has proven to be a costly affair for the Indian team, more so, for fast bowler Mohammed Shami, who has been subjected to vile trolling and abuse.
However, while we continue to cuss at one of our own, Pakistani opener, Mohammad Rizwan has decided to take a stand for the Indian quick.
The kind of pressure, struggles & sacrifices a player has to go through for his country & his people is immeasurable. @MdShami11 is a star & indeed of the best bowlers in the world— Mohammad Rizwan (@iMRizwanPak) October 26, 2021
Please respect your stars. This game should bring people together & not divide ’em #Shami #PAKvIND pic.twitter.com/3p70Ia8zxf
Rizwan is being lauded by fans, especially by Indian fans who have been applauding his show of sportsmanship and solidarity with a fellow cricketer.
This man already had my respect as a cricketer but now he has shown how good a human being he is.@iMRizwanPak https://t.co/gg7zZt473P— Suyash Srivastava (@SuyashLfc) October 26, 2021

Safe to say that Pakistan isn’t finished winning over India just yet. This is a wonderful gesture, and one that sits heads and shoulders above most others that have come out recently. #T20WorldCup https://t.co/rgdTg3GMWT— Shiv (@ForwardDefence) October 26, 2021

Well played @iMRizwanPak – both on & off the field! Respect! On a separate note, our team and the unfortunate souls aka trolls are getting schooled here. Properly. This is getting embarrassing for us. https://t.co/OY2JvmHaSH— Sumit Katyal (@SumitKatyal2) October 26, 2021
