PAK vs AUS: Former Pakistani veteran came in support of Hasan Ali, who dropped the catch of Matthew Wade, know who said what

Pakistan vs Australia Semifinal: Pakistan pacer Hasan Ali, who is facing criticism for dropping a catch by Matthew Wade in the second semi-final of the ICC T20 World Cup against Australia, has been replaced by Wasim Akram and Misbah-ul- Has got the support of former cricket stalwarts of the country like Haque. Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Rashid Latif, Misbah-ul-Haq and Inzamam-ul-Haq backed Hasan and said it would be unfair to hold him responsible for Pakistan’s five-wicket loss on Thursday night.

< p style="text-align: justify;"> Akram questioned, I do not understand why a player should be targeted. Hasan has been a great performer for us and has won us matches. Anyone can drop a catch or have a bad day on the field. Does this make him a bad player? He started a ‘sports channel’ But said, we do not want the whole country to fall behind Hassan. I have gone through such a situation, Waqar Yunus has gone through it. In other countries it is just a game for the people. Next day you say you tried well, today luck didn’t support you, next time luck will support you.

Waqar supported him and said, "No one does this intentionally. As a former player, I can understand it. I have also seen bad times. When you have a bad day, the bowling is not good, catches are missed. I remember how people criticized me after the 1996 World Cup quarter-finals, but I think we need to understand that this is a game."

Former wicketkeeper Rashid Latif said, "These players can be mentally hurt by sharp criticism and trolling on social media. I can tell you that the entire Pakistan team will be disappointed after losing such a big match." Pakistan fast bowler Wahab Riaz said that it is always difficult to catch in the lights of Dubai Stadium. They said, "No one deliberately drops a catch. I think there is a need to keep the morale up and move forward. It was not a very good World Cup for him and his confidence is shaken."
