A video of Naseem Shah recalling his mother ahead of surgery. DBTV Sports has faced criticism for sharing a viral video featuring young Pakistani fast bowler Naseem Shah in a vulnerable moment as he prepared for shoulder surgery in London. The video has stirred emotions among netizens, who found it inappropriate to publicize such a personal moment for the sake of views and likes. Fans have demanded the immediate removal of the video.
In the video, Naseem Shah can be seen heavily sedated, tearfully calling out to his late mother while being consoled by the person recording the footage. His mother tragically passed away in 2019, during the time when Naseem made his international Test debut for Pakistan in Australia.
Fans expressed their disappointment at the invasion of Naseem Shah’s privacy, with one user commenting, “This is so wrong! Please give respect to someone’s privacy.” Another user questioned the motives behind sharing the video, stating, “Wtf is wrong with y’all, Not everything is for reach and likes, stop invading his privacy, delete this as soon as possible.”
On a positive note, Naseem Shah has successfully undergone a 30-minute shoulder surgery conducted by a specialist surgeon in London. Doctors anticipate a swift recovery for the 21-year-old pacer.
Following the surgery, Naseem Shah has been advised to take a recovery period of four to six weeks, during which he will focus on rehabilitation before resuming his practice sessions. Medical experts involved in his treatment remain optimistic about his rapid recovery, citing his youth as a significant advantage. Young athletes like Naseem often have a higher likelihood of a quicker recuperation compared to their older counterparts.
Earlier, he was expected to miss the initial matches of ODI World Cup 2023, set to commence on October 5th in India. Pakistan’s captain, Babar Azam, had provided updates on the injuries to Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf, expressing optimism that Naseem Shah might return later in the tournament.
