On Sunday, India got the better of their Arch-rivals for the seventh time in the World Cup and it doesn’t go well with the fans and the media in Pakistan as the fans started abusing the players for not taking the game seriously.

In fact, some fans also released photos of players like Shoaib Malik, Imad Wasim and Wahab Riaz partying till late night on the eve of the game with Malik’s wife Sania Mirza giving them company. This has seen a war of words between Pakistan actress Veena Malik and Mirza.

Taking to Twitter, Veena Malik wrote: “Sania, I am actually so worried for the kid. You guys took him to a sheesha place isn’t it Hazardous? (sic) Also as far as I know Archie’s is all about junk food which isn’t good for athletes/Boys. You must know well as you are mother and athlete yourself?

Sania Mirza who was visibly frustrated because of the number of trolls she received, replied the following.

“Veena,I have not taken my kid to a sheesha place. Not that it’s any of your or the rest of the world’s business cause I think I care bout my son a lot more than anyone else does πŸ™‚ secondly I am not Pakistan cricket team’s dietician nor am I their mother or principal or teacher to know when they sleep,wake up and eat ..
thank you for your concern though .. means a lot (sic),” she wrote.

Mirza’s husband Shoaib also added his bit on Twitter and wrote: “On behalf of all athletes I would like to request media and people to maintain respect levels in regards to our families, who should not be dragged into petty discussions at will. It’s not a nice thing to do.”

The Pakistan Board has cleared the controversy surrounding the image quoting that it was taken two days before the match and the players didn’t break any code.
