Sarfaraz Ahmed was not too thrilled at a joke just lately made by a cricket journalist on Twitter. The cricketer and former captain of Pakistan’s cricket group posted a startlingly indignant reply when cricket journalist Aalia Rasheed tweeted a quip aimed toward Ahmed, referencing a controversial incident from his time as group captain.
It began when Ahmed’s spouse — Khushbakht Sarfaraz — posted an lovely video of her husband baking his particular ‘Sarfaraz Ahmed pasta’. The video confirmed Ahmed placing pasta dishes into the oven whereas carrying his oven mitts inside out.
The video proved to be fairly the hit on social media. Ahmed’s buddies and fellow cricket gamers Shadab Khan and Hassan Ali could not get sufficient of the video both. They posted replies on the video, teasing the previous captain and his spouse about Ahmed’s cooking adventures.
“You have put our captain to work as quickly as he got here again dwelling bhabi,” Khan joked in his tweet.
Ali requested the captain to inform him the key to his cooking expertise.
Khan cheekily posted one other reply, asking the previous captain to deal with him and Ali to tea he had ready himself.
That is when cricket journalist Rasheed jumped into the dialog and made a joke. “Bro take it easy! You’re asking him to make tea when him giving away water created such a storm,” she replied.
Rasheed’s little quip didn’t sit effectively with Ahmed in any respect. “We’re talking about something else here and yet you’re saying something completely different. First of all, you should not be part of this conversation at all, this isn’t about cricket. It would be better if you kept your opinion to the game and did not force yourself into a personal conversation,” the cricketer replied.
Rasheed appeared fairly alarmed by Ahmed’s reply, after which she tweeted to make clear that it had solely been a joke.
Speak about a powerful response. Rasheed’s joke referenced the controversy stirred up throughout a Pakistan versus England match in 2020. Photos of Ahmed bringing water to the sector had gone viral for all of the unsuitable causes on social media, triggering sturdy protests from Ahmed’s followers who said he deserved to be handled with extra respect as a senior participant and former group captain.
Ahmed is not the primary Pakistani cricket participant to explode at a journalist’s ‘joke’ on Twitter. Babar Azam lashed out in 2018 to a tweet by journalist Zainab Abbas congratulating him for his efficiency in a match in opposition to New Zealand.
It looks as if neither participant likes jokes at their expense on Twitter. Do you assume Ahmed’s response to the joke was justified?
