Mumbai: Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Malik and Indian tennis sensation Sania Mirza have blasted away the Pakistani media, after the media claimed that Malik along with few other team-mates were partying and smoking ‘shisha’ just few hours ahead of the crucial match against India in Manchester.
The highly-awaited India Pakistan match was expected to be an intense match, but unfortunately, the match became an-one sided contest as India crushed Pakistan by 89 runs (DLS process). When wickets started to fall, Shoaib Malik too was bowled out for a first ball duck. Eventually, the team ended up 89 runs short of the winning mark.
After the team’s defeat, pictures and video started spreading on the social network sites. The photo shows Malik, Imad Wasim and Wahab Riaz sitting in a restaurant based in Manchester. The pictures were reportedly taken before the India Pakistan match. Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik and Indian tennis ace, Sania Mirza was also seen in the picture.
Shoaib Malik didn’t take the pictures in good light as he took to twitter to vent his anger out. In a tweet he stated that the photos were clicked on June 13 and not before the India Pakistan match, Malik indirectly hit out at the media for claiming false information.
When will Pak media be accountable for their credibility by our courts?!
Having served my country for +20 years in Intl Cricket, it’s sad that I have to clarify things related to my personal life. The videos are from 13th June and not 15th
