Do not use bad words for players: Amir appeals to Pakistani fans
Pakistani fast bowler Mohammad Amir appealed to fans on Monday to not abuse players for losing the match against India, promising fans that the team would make a comeback.
The World Cup hasn’t been going well for the Pakistan cricket team. After a humiliating loss to the West Indies, the green shirts beat tournament favourites England before succumbing against India.
It was not that the team lost–rather the way its batsmen faltered against the Indian bowling that drew ire from Pakistani fans.
However, fast bowler Mohammad Amir, whose performance stood out in the match, urged fans not to abuse Pakistani players.
“Pls dont use bad words for the players yes u guys can criticise our performance we will bounce back InshAllah we need ur support,” he tweeted.

Pakistan next take on South Africa in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 on June 23, 2019. Pakistan have a slim chance of reaching the semi-finals of the World Cup if they win all their upcoming matches.
