We all know and love both Shoaib Malik and Ahmad Shahzad. Whether that love is fluctuating, that’s another story. Obviously, as sportsmen, everyone has their ups and downs, their moments of glory and not-so-good days. And I think we’re a little too hard on our men in green, at times. And with the Pakistan vs World XI series 2/3rds done, everyone’s eyes are on the cricket team, to see how they’re doing.
Amidst all the Hala Lala, and the craziness, Shoaib Malik became the highest test scorer for Pakistan, last night
And people went crazy with tareefein and mubarakein. And for good reason.

One such well-wisher was our answer to Virat Kohli, Ahmad Shahzad, who tweeted the nicest things

Now we’ve all seen that Ahmad’s performance on the pitch has been laced with criticism, injuries, and tanqeed.
But Shoaib Malik decided to be a leeeettle funny with his reply
Thank you bro kabhi mujhe bhi mauqa de apko great bolne ka ?

We can’t wait for Ahmad Shahzad to come back with a reply, till then, we’d urge everyone to appreciate everyone representing Pakistan on such a big platform. These men need our support, not our criticism. If we keep putting them down, there will be a point where they won’t be able to get back up. And we don’t want that, do you?
So, are you team Shoaib Malik or team Ahmad Shahzad? Let us know in the comments below ⇓
