Shoaib Akhtar was one of the first names to criticize Ahmed on his fitness while also proceeding to call the captain “brainless” after a series of tactical mistakes that cost them the game against India.

In a video that has surfaced online, a Pakistani fan is seen asking Sarfaraz Ahmed for a selfie at the mall. Things took a turn for the worst, as the fan began to publically body shame the player by calling him “fat as a pig”.

Sarfaraz, who was along with his son during that time, can be seen ignoring the insults and making his way away from the fan.

The Pakistani skipper’s attitude and calmness while dealing with such a predicament were met with praise from the people across the border as well.

To end the fiasco, the fan conveyed his apologies to the captain as well as the people through a video on Twitter.

Here are a few tweets which highlight the support that Ahmed has received:
