Team Pakistan’s skipper, Sarfraz Ahmed, was mercilessly trolled for his poor spoken English skills on an Indian Facebook page.

It all started when Sarfraz was addressing a post match press conference after Pakistan thrashed Sri Lanka on 12 June to enter the semis of the ongoing ICC Champions Trophy.

Sarfraz was heard saying “Sarrey English waley hain kya? (Is everyone an English speaker here?) and this was enough to start a string of jokes around him.

An Indian Facebook page took a dig at the cricketer, by posting memes on his press conference ‘faux-pas’.

Indians were quick to respond, but instead of making fun of the player, they came to his defence.

The post was bombarded with comments which criticised the page and supported Ahmed by saying that he was a cricketer who does not need to hone his spoken English.

There were others who went on to question why English was a standard to judge merit.

No matter the cross-border tensions or the heated combat on the pitch, this incident shows there is still room for mutual respect!
