As the World Cup season has arrived, the excitement of cricket craze along with controversies took the higher grounds. No matter which tournament it is, the rivalry between Pakistan and Hindustan always serve as the major controversial element to the world. And as Pakistan lost the most important match yesterday, that too against India, it stirred a whole new debate among the social interactions.
Tarek Fateh who is a Pakistani-Canadian journalist and author tweeted on his official Twitter account regarding the Pak-Indo match!
On Sunday, before the majorly hyped battle between Pakistan and India started, Tarek Fatah shared his misleading opinion following the match preparations on Twitter and it was not taken well by the social media users. In the tweet, Tarek lashed out at Pakistan Cricket Team’s captain Sarfraz Ahmed for bringing a ‘Mullah’ on the pitch which in reality was Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB’s) chief selector Inzamam ul Haq.
Furthermore, he tweeted that Sarfraz had brought in a ‘Mullah’ to bless the pitch and pray before the match so that the winning possibilities get high for Pakistan. Check it out below!
His tweet clearly shows how big of an ignorant personality Tarek covers!
The @CricketWcup2019 witnesses a bizarre spectacle only Pakistanis can offer. Capt. @SarfarazA_54 Ahmed brings out their 13th Man, a Mullah to bless the pitch for tomorrow's match against India. Thank you @Sachin_anshu06 for sharing this gem. #INDvsPAK #PAKvsIND #WorldCup2019 pic.twitter.com/MtpAngKDun

Tarek Fatah even tagged and thanked the person who shared the misleads with him in the same tweet. Twitteratis were quick to correct Tarek’s mistake and the bashing was brutal. Some of the replies on his tweet are shared below!
Thank you for clearing things out!
What?? He is Inzamam, a legend of this game. Ex-captain of Pak cricket team and currently head of their selection committee.

You’re doing great. People like this don’t deserve to be followed!
Oh God! I can't follow you anymore Sir. It's the third time I have seen you sharing something without verifying. FYI, that's Inzamam Ul Haq. One of cricket's greats. And another thing. Sports should always be kept away from all this.

This Indian lad stated the true facts!
Tarek Sahab – No matter how bad pakistan is…we cannot denie Inzamam’s pitch reading skills. He is among worlds best pitch readers.

After facing major humiliation on the tweet, Tarek tried to turn it with his dead humor and posted another image. This time he photoshopped Inzamam’s face and replaced it with the famous Islamic Scholar Zakir Naik.
Here’s what Tarek tweeted later!
Some Indians r very upset at me for posting what they say is a photoshopped pic of Inzimam Haq praying over the pitch & casting magic spells to help Pakistan bowlers. My mistake. Here is the original pic. It wasn't Inzi of 'bouys played well' fame, but rather it was Zakir Naik! pic.twitter.com/gIonJzRDEk
