Khushdil Shah, a batsman in Pakistan’s middle order, has drawn harsh criticism for his poor performance in the just-completed Asia Cup 2022 and a seven-match T20I series against England at home.

The left-handed hard-hitter scored 58 runs at an average of 15.50 in six Asia Cup 2022 games, with a best of 35 runs, and 63 runs in four innings against England at an average of 21.00.

When the Bannu-born cricketer lost his wicket to Adil Rashid in the most recent T20I after scoring 27 runs off 25 balls, Pakistani supporters yelled at him, calling him a “parchi,” a phrase for sportsmen who receive special treatment.

Imam-ul-Haq, however, has voiced his unhappiness over the event and pleaded with cricket fans to refrain from acting in this way toward any player because it can do psychological harm to them.

Imam pleaded with the supporters of the team on social media, saying: “I would like to suggest that our fans refrain from such rants at any player as they might negatively affect the player’s health. Instead, please try to support them like you always do, regardless of the results. We compete for Pakistan as well as for you.

It’s important to remember that the left-handed opener has faced similar criticism from fans in the past, but he has silenced all of them with his bat by putting on outstanding performances recently.

“Every time I would open my phone, there were people tagging me on social media posts or emailing me stuff,” Imam claimed in an interview with ESPNcricinfo. Imam, on the other hand, declared that he would call his memoirs “Parchi.”
