‘Ab Fixer Batayenge Hume?’: Fans Are Trolling This Pakistan Pacer For Insulting Rishabh Pant

India’s star keeper-batter Rishabh Pant has been receiving praises from all corners, all thanks to his terrific performances in the ongoing final Test match against England.

Rishabh Pant scored 200 runs against England

Rishabh Pant played a counter-attacking knock and registered a stunning century in the first innings and later he played a crucial knock of 50 plus runs in the second innings to bail out the Indian side after a horrible top-order collapse in both innings.

The whole cricketing fraternity tipped their hat to the young keeper-batter for his fearless knock that helped the Indian side put a competitive total on the scoreboard.

Mohammad Asif Insults Pant

However, a former Pakistan pacer Mohammad Asif has discredited Pant’s heroics with the bat and said that it was the poor tactics of the England pacer that allowed the 24-year-old to play the way he did. Yes, you read that right.

Asif feels that because of England’s tactics, Rishabh Pant was able to perform in this way. He also said that Pant has technical faults as his left-hand doesn’t work. He said:

“It was totally England bowlers’ fault as Pant did no wonders. He [Pant] has technical faults. His left hand doesn’t work but still, he managed to score a century because English bowlers didn’t bowl to him in his weak areas,”

He added: “I will not name individuals but England made a lot of mistakes. When Jadeja and Pant were batting, they brought in a left-arm spinner who wasn’t an ideal option to bowl at that moment,”

“I am not against Pant, but with such decisions by the opposition, you get an edge to score big. I pointed out Kohli’s technical fault a couple of years ago but people started calling me out. See today (Friday), he hasn’t scored a century for a long time now. I love watching Kohli and even he is a bigger player than me. But technically, he needs to work harder,” Asif concluded.

Well, his comments didn’t go down well with the fans, who are now trolling him left, right and center on Twitter.
