Pakistan captain, Sarfaraz Ahmed made a very positive statement stating that the Pakistani fans will not boo shame the Australian Steve Smith in the World Cup. Smith, who was the captain of the ball-tampering controversy which took place last year, was jeered with the chants of "cheater, cheater" when he took the field against India in Bristol.
And with Pakistan fans expected to make up a large chunk of the crowd in Taunton, there are fears they might follow the example of the Indian supporters and give a tough time to Smith and David Warner. However, Sarfaraz insists that Pakistani fans will not resort to such tactics during the World Cup.
“I don’t think Pakistani people will be doing it like that. Pakistan people love cricket and they love to support it, and they love the players,” Sarfaraz said.
