During the PSL match between Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta Gladiators, Simon Doull, a former New Zealand cricketer, criticized Babar Azam, the captain of Peshawar Zalmi, for slowing down his innings to complete his maiden PSL century.
Babar was on 80 off 44 at one point but took 16 more deliveries to reach his century, which he completed by hitting a boundary. However, despite Babar’s efforts, Peshawar Zalmi lost the match due to a record-breaking inning of 145 runs by Jason Roy, which is the highest individual score in PSL history.
Following Doull’s comments, Babar fans expressed their disapproval, and some even harassed him via messages. One Babar fan went so far as to use foul language and give rape threats to Doull’s mother and sister. Doull took this personally and shared the screenshot of the message on his social media.
He explained that the language used by the fan was not appropriate and mentioned that his mother had already passed away. The incident sparked outrage among cricket fans, and many came forward to condemn the behaviour of the abusive fan.
“So sorry to have upset you Feroz. It’s just an opinion and I get paid for it. It’s ok if you don’t agree but this language is never ok. And my mother has also passed.”
Here is what Babar fan messaged to Duoll
Simon Doull was harassed by a Pakistani after he gave his honest opinion on plastic king’s statpadding innings. What a world are we living in? Shame on the people there! Abusing him doesn’t change that Babar is a loser and belongs nowhere.
