NEW DELHI: Mohammad Shami was subjected to much trolling after the paceman returned figures of 0/43 in 3.5 overs. Shami had a poor outing on Sunday and it was in his over that Pakistan completed the 152-run chase with Mohammad Rizwan depositing the Indian pacer to all parts of the ground in Dubai.
Former Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag came out in support of Mohammad Shami after India’s 10-wicket defeat to Pakistan on Sunday.
Sachin Tendulkar tweeted in support of Shami saying, “When we support Team India we support every person who represents Team India.”
Virender Sehwag tweeted, “The online attack on Mohammad Shami is shocking and we stand by him.”
Veteran India spinner Harbhajan Singh also extended his support to Shami and wrote, “We love you Mohammad Shami”.
Leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, who has played a lot of international cricket alongside Shami, also took to Twitter to back the paceman. “We are so proud of you,” Chahal wrote.
India’s next match in the T20 World Cup is against New Zealand.
