PAKISTAN captain Sarfaraz Ahmed says incidents like the one in which he was compared to a “pig” by a fan are hurtful but there is nothing he can do to prevent them and can only plead for civility in criticism. Pakistani fans have severely criticised the national team after its 89-run loss to arch-rivals India in a World Cup encounter in Manchester.
In a recent video that went viral on social media, Sarfaraz, walking in a mall in England with his son, was stopped by a fan, who asked him why he looked like a fat pig. The fan eventually apologised for his conduct after drawing flak from all corners. “I can’t say anything on this. It’s not in our hands to control what people say about us,” Sarfaraz retorted.
