Jingoistic social media users are blaming Mohammad Shami for India’s loss to Pakistan in the T20 World Cup match on Sunday.
Shami is being hounded on social media to the extent that some are accusing him of accepting money from the rival team to perform badly.
India managed to put 151 on the board after struggling at 36/3 with openers Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul not contributing with the bat at all.
It was Virat Kohli (57) and Rishabh Pant (39) who helped India post 151/7 in 20 overs.
Pakistani openers did not give their wickets and achieved the target easily with 13 balls to spare.
Shami, who bowled the 18th over of the match, conceded 17 runs in five balls. This did not go down well with the jingoist fans, who took to Instagram to question the Indian player’s integrity due to his Muslim identity.
