Pakistani cricketer Hasan Ali was mercilessly trolled after a video of him walking down the ramp at a fashion event went viral on social media.
The fast bowler was taken out of the two-Test series against Sri Lanka with fractured ribs. The video was primarily shared on Twitter by a Pakistani journalist called Saj Sadiq, who wrote: “Fractured ribs and out of cricket, but Hassan Ali’s fit for some modeling”.
In the video, Ali can be seen walking down the ramp and bring off his trademark wicket-taking bash.
Pakistan cricket fans took Twitter to criticize the bowler.
Ali was ruled out of the Pakistani Test squad on November 30th this year. The player was initially set to play in the 9th round of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy for Central Punjab against Khyber Pakhtunkhwa last week but got pulled out at the last minute after complaining of severe pain in the left rib.
Later, the 25-year-old had to go through precautionary medical tests and scans which revealed that he had sustained cortical rib fractures. The player also missed out on the T20I series against Australia last month due to back problems.
The Test series between Pakistan and Sri Lanka began from December 11 at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium. The final Test between the two teams is soon to start on December 19 at the National Stadium in Karachi.
