'Useless nonsense... shame on you' Mohammed Shami hits back at Hasan Raza over India's allegations of cheating!
Indian fast bowler Mohammed Shami has responded to former Pakistani cricketer Hasan Raza's allegations about India using different balls for bowling during the ICC World Cup 2023.
Shami took to Instagram to express his disappointment and strongly said that Raza should not be jealous of India's success but should focus on the game.
Shami wrote in his post, "Shame on you friend, focus on the game and not on nonsense, enjoy the success of others sometimes, dammit, this is the ICC World Cup, not your local cricket tournament and you were a player only."
Shami urged Raza to have faith in his fellow former cricketer Wasim Akram, who had earlier provided detailed details on the selection process of cricket balls during a match.
Shami said- “Wasim Bhai has explained, still. Don't trust your player, your Wasim Akram, you are busy praising yourself sir, you are just like wow.
Hasan Raza has accused the Indian team of showing favoritism towards the Indian bowlers through the provision of specially designed balls by the International Cricket Council (ICC) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
Raza said- “The way Siraj and Shami were swinging the ball, it seemed that ICC or BCCI was giving them different and questionable balls in the second innings. It is important to inspect the ball. “There may be an additional layer of coating for a better swing.”
Legendary cricketer Wasim Akram also criticized Raza's comments. The cricketer turned commentator considered these comments to be insulting not only to Raza but to the entire cricket fraternity of Pakistan.
