Pakistani Cricketers have been criticised after they got defeat by India, Shoaib Malik replies over this

Batsman Shoaib Malik  is getting criticised after Pakistan’s embarrassing defeat to India and has lashed out at the country’s media for claiming that he and other players were out smoking sheesha and partying, hours before the crucial match in Manchester.

Pakistan was defeated by India by 89 runs (D/L method) in a one-sided, rain interrupted tie on Sunday. After the defeat, Pakistani cricketers have been criticised on social media, not only by the fans, but by former cricketers too for their lackluster performance against the Men in Blue. Many questions were raised about the Pakistan player’s fitness and the apparent flouting of the curfew norms after a series of photos and videos showed certain members of the team supposedly socializing past curfew.

Even as the Sunday’s match was under progress, the posts started getting viral online. Malik says that the purported video is of June 13 and not before the night of the match.

Malik tweeted “When will Pak media be accountable for their credibility by our courts? Having served my country for +20 years in international cricket, it’s sad that I have to clarify things related to my personal life. The videos are from 13th June and not 15th”.

As Shoaib’s wife and Indian tennis star Sania Mirza is also being targeted and on this the Pakistan all-rounder said: “On behalf of all athletes I would like to request media and people to maintain respect levels in regards to our families, who should not be dragged into petty discussions at will. It’s not a nice thing to do.”
