India earlier defeated Pakistan at Manchester by 89 runs in a rain-affected match. For this defeat, Pakistan fans were extremely disappointed because their team was defeated by arch-rivals India for the seventh time in this history of World Cup. Many took to social media to express their disappointment and Sania Mirza was their victims as well. People trolled her left and right, as his husband Shoaib Malik was out on a duck without bothering the team’s score. Now it seems she has reacted to all trolls and gave a befitting reply to her trollers.
The Viral Video
On a viral video surfing all over the internet and social media, the Pakistani all-rounder Shoaib Malik along with his wife and Indian tennis star Sania Mirza and other Pakistani cricketers like Wahab Riaz and Imam-ul Haq were reportedly seen enjoying shisha at the lounge a day before the World Cup match in the footage. This was blamed as the chief reason for the defeat by the Pakistan fans and media.
