Hasan Ali has been receiving flak from anguished cricket fans since he dropped the crucial catch of Matthew Wade in the 2nd semi-final of T20 World Cup 2021 in Dubai. After getting a life, the Australian wicketkeeper-batter went on to smash three consecutive sixes to knock the Men in Green out of the tournament.

Pakistan’s winning spree came to an end following this defeat and a section of fans held the right-arm quick responsible. Some people even crossed the limits by hurling abuses at Hasan Ali on social media platforms.

On Saturday, Ali took to Twitter and regretted for his forgettable outing against Australia. He said he is more disappointed than anyone else and pledged to come back stronger from this bad phase of career.

“I know you all are upset because my performance didn’t meet your expectations but not more disappointed than me. Don’t change your expectations from me. I want to serve Pakistan cricket at the highest level possible, so back to hard work.

“This patch will make me stronger. Thank you for all the messages, tweets, posts, calls and duas (prayers) - needed them,” Ali tweeted.
