And some passionate cricket lovers seem to have crossed it.This cringe-worthy video is the latest in the violent trolling that Sarfaraz Ahmed has received since Pakistan lost to India.And it is sad that very few cricket fans have looked past his ‘role in Pakistan's defeat to India,’ to call out the obvious body shaming he is facing.
