A video has surfaced online showing Pakistan’s right-arm quick Hasan Ali forcefully responding to a noisy fan insulting his catching abilities. The footage was thought to have been taken when the pacer approached the crowd to sign autographs after Saturday’s third Test against Australia in Sydney. However, things took a turn for the worst when a Pakistani fan criticized Ali’s catching ability.
Hasan Ali fiercely responds to a fan insulting his catching abilities
A Pakistani fan mocked Ali, saying, “Come here, let me teach you how to catch.” The 29-year-old fast bowler quickly reacted to the phone, saying, “Sure, come here.” “Who will teach me to catch?” Pakistan lost a 3-0 whitewash over the home team, extending their losing skid to 17 matches in Australia as of yet.
Hasan Ali has come under fire for missing a clear chance. So, it was for Australian batter Matthew Wade in the 2021 T20 World Cup semifinals. His failed catch proved costly for Pakistan, as Wade hit three consecutive sixes off Shaheen Afridi in the next three deliveries, resulting in Pakistan’s elimination from the competition.
In the SCG Test, Pakistan took a 14-run first-innings lead as Aamer Jamal’s six-wicket haul reduced. Also, the Australian hosts to a meager 299 on Day 3. However, the visitors were unable to maintain their momentum, getting bowled for just 115 in their second innings on Day 4. In response, Australia easily met its 130-run target. Retired opener David Warner and number three batter Marnus Labuschagne both produced brilliant half-centuries throughout the chase.
