The situation is getting out of hand now. Pakistani fans now have started following players off the field and shaming them in public. After their defeat against India last Sunday, some Pakistani fans have gone over the board in trying to show their level of humour.
A Pakistani fan in England has gone at another level of trolling by shaming and abusing the Pakistani captain Sarfaraz Ahmed in public.
The Pakistani fan was found saying, ‘Bhai, aap suar jaise mote kyu ho, bade mote ho rahe ho, bada naam Pakistan ka roshan kiya aapne, suar jaise mote ho, kam diet kiya karo’ which translates ‘Bro, why are you fat like a pig, you have to make the country proud, fat like a pig, have some diet’
Sarfaraz was out with his kid in a mall when the fan asked for a selfie. Instead of taking selfie he started making video and abusing the Pakistani captain.
Maybe we praised the Pakistani sense of humor way too much so they had to come up with something as pathetic as this. pic.twitter.com/UdxyiDnSdk

This is not the first time Sarfaraz has to face this kind of criticism. In the game against India, he was called ‘Sarfaraz mote’ by some fans inside the stadium after the match got over. Even the ex-cricketer and pace bowler Shoaib Akhtar had criticized Sarfaraz in the past for his fitness.
The fan in the video who called Sarfaraz a fat pig has come out with a video saying that he didn’t know how the video has gone viral, as he has deleted it after recording. He also apologized for his behaviour to Sarfaraz and fans around the world.
I deleted the video instantly and it got uploaded on the internet. Ye apology hai ya technology ke munh pe ek karara thappad hai? pic.twitter.com/Z4g8LWn8SV
