A lot happens during a cricket match. As much as we enjoy watching it, we should also consider how a player gives his best to make his country win.
While it's easy to sit in front of the screen to give commentary, we all need to be a little sensitive about it.
Hasan Ali's catch drop in the semi-final between Pakistan and Australia is one such moment we need to support them more.
This gesture by Shoaib Malik, who quickly runs to Hasan Ali to cheer him up, is the perspective we all need when we watch cricket.
Twitteratis are already lauding this gesture by Shoaib Malik, and honestly, we should too.
Shane Watson after Hasan Ali's drop: "Shoaib Malik, the elder statesman, knows this is the right time to go and look after his mate. He'll be feeling like he wants to dig himself into a hole. Shoaib Malik, that is brilliant."— Grassroots Cricket (@grassrootscric) November 11, 2021

One of the best moments from the #PAKVSAUS match today was when @realshoaibmalik consoled @RealHa55an when he dropped a catch. Be like him.— Usama Khilji (@UsamaKhilji) November 11, 2021

You can be either Shoaib Malik today or an abusive indian. Decision is yours. pic.twitter.com/m6I6MTkY9x— LHK 🇵🇰 (@Edwardian842) November 11, 2021
I absolutely loved the way @realshoaibmalik went up to @RealHa55an just after dropping that catch and tried to cheer him up. Shows exactly what Malik brings to the this team, and I’d be more than eager to see him play the world cup next year, and probably bow out a champion. #Pak— Z. (@MallickZ08) November 12, 2021

Hassan Ali is a brilliant Player. I would request everyone to stop abusive comments, trolling & hate. @realshoaibmalik did the right thing by supporting a young player just when he needed it. Always proud of all our boys! Pakistan cricket team has a bright future ❤️ pic.twitter.com/TrnSWN0yrO— Maleeka Bokhari (@MalBokhari) November 11, 2021
