Pakistan fast bowler Hasan Ali was on the receiving end of abuse after he dropped a regulation catch during the second semi-final against Australia at Dubai International Stadium in Dubai. During the crucial situation of the semi-final, Hasan Ali could have easily grabbed a catch to dismiss Matthew Wade but that wasn’t meant to be.
The fielder sprinted to take a catch but ended up dropping it. Meanwhile, Pakistan fans were taken aback by Hasan Ali’s fielding effort. Matthew Wade capitalized the opportunity properly by smashing a hat-trick of sixes off Shaheen Shah Afridi. Australia aced the run-chase in 19 overs and won the game by 5 wickets.
After Australia knocked Pakistan out of the semi-final, fans from every nook and corner of the Pakistan cricket fraternity abused Hasan Ali for his shoddy fielding mistake. Meanwhile, some fans even pointed out that this was because that he is married to an Indian girl Samiya Arzoo.
From then on, Samiya’s name trended on social media portals. For the unversed, Samiya is an aeronautical engineer by training and got hitched to Hasan in a grand ceremony in Dubai in 2019. Some fans claimed that the game was ‘fixed’ by Ali as he was married to an Indian woman.
Hasan Ali’s wife says they have seen massive support and no threats
In the midst of hullabaloo, Hasan Ali’s wife said she got huge support and further stressed the fact that she didn’t receive any threats.
The caption said: “Saw many tweets circulating from this fake account that I, Hassan and my daughter are getting threats from people from Pakistan, which is absolutely wrong. Instead we’ve seen tons of support” read the caption.
Her caption also said about how the Twitter account was a fake one and she, in fact, is not on Twitter in the first place. “Please don’t believe any such statements and don’t follow any accounts on Twitter pretending to be me. I am not on Twitter. Please report the accounts claiming to be me.” she said on her Instagram story.
