When it comes to cricket, emotions are quite high. Yet occasionally people forget that players take failure just as hard as their supporters do. However, fans are ready to comfort a player who is struggling, as was the case when a video of Shadab Khan purportedly sobbing went viral on social media.
Shadab Khan cried after Zimbabwe’s defeat
In a game that was, by all accounts, comfortably winnable on Thursday, Pakistan fell to Zimbabwe. The Green Shirts suffered a disheartening defeat by one run. Fans responded negatively and started their customary criticism on Pakistani Twitter. Soon after, the conversation took a different turn as a video of a furious Khan gained popularity. Supporters flocked to him and urged him not to take it too personally.
His supporters were also moved by the thought of him maybe crying. People who were criticizing the player were reprimanded. She turned to face him, trying to comfort him by saying that losing is a part of the game.
Fans Supported Shadab Khan after Zimbabwe’s defeat
Some Twitter users are perplexed because, despite being irate, they have a strong love for Khan. Fans begged those attacking the players to treat the situation sympathetically.
When the team you are pulling for loses, it is understandably quite distressing. But someone has to lose, and sometimes it’s us. It’s acceptable to feel how you feel, but it’s not acceptable to vent to other people, not even the other gamers. The best course of action would be to deal with these feelings in a healthy way as opposed to assaulting others and endangering both your own and their mental health.
Shadab Khan is one of the best all-rounders on the Pakistan team. And he has performed quite well in recent times. Fans expect that he will fight back together with the team.
