A few months back, the same cricket fans had been supporting Naseem Shah after he misspelled the word ‘Lenovo’ in one of the old videos shared by an Indian Twitter user.
The video shows the cricketer was shot during the PSL days; he is seen wearing the jersey of the PSL franchise Quetta Gladiator. It was a PR video made by the franchise. The video showed cricketers- Muhammad Nawaz and Naseem Shah being asked about ‘Lenovo’. Muhammad Nawaz answered it correctly, but Naseem Shah struggled to pronounce and spell the word.
The Indian Twitter mocks the 19-year-old cricketer on Twitter. Soon Pakistani cricket fans rallied in defense of the Pakistani cricketer and reminded him how brutally Naseem Shah picked wickets against India in the recently concluded Asia Cup 2022 match. Twitter users reminded the Indian user that Indian batters could not play Naseem Shah in the Asia Cup 2022.
