Being a famous person means that you are in the spotlight, and there is attention on what you do. And, in the world of social media, this attention and scrutiny are at its peak, and players are sometimes subjected to taunts from fans.
One such incident took place on 29th August 2021. A fan, whose Twitter profile name reads Asfandyar Wali has asked Azhar Ali as to when he is planning to retire from the game. The fan even added that Azhar Ali is a burden for the Pakistan side due to his poor performance with the willow against West Indies and Zimbabwe.
Stating that Ali has struggled against weak bowling attacks, the fan further asked Ali what would his condition be when he faces up to bowlers from India, Australia, England, and New Zealand. And to that, Azhar Ali shut the fan down by asking him to go and do his homework better.
Brother you need to do your homework a little bit better… https://t.co/uC0nFdj6FR
