The Pakistan premier pacer Mohammad Amir has requested Pakistan fans not to use bad words against the Pakistan cricketers who are on the receiving end of backlash following loss to India in the ICC cricket World Cup 2019.

While former pacer Shoaib Akhtar dubbed Sarfaraz Ahmed a “brainless captain” in a passionate rant on his YouTube channel, many fans used expletives to describe their team’s performance. Mohammad Amir was the only silver lining for Pakistan on an otherwise torturous outing and the left-arm pacer took to Twitter to plead with fans not “use bad words for the players” while criticising their performance.

“Pls dont use bad words for the players yes u guys can criticise our performance we will bounce back InshAllah we need ur support,” wrote Mohammad Amir on Twitter.

Pakistan were no match for a much superior Indian team that cruised to an 89-run win via the DLS method in Sunday’s World Cup 2019 clash in Manchester.
