After badly beaten in the world cup match against India, Pakistani supports are furious over the viral video of Pakistani team at Sheesha Bar.
Amid all this controversy, PCB has clarified in a statement that the viral video of Pakistani cricketers sitting in a Shisha bar was recorded two days before the India match.
The PCB clarified that the players spent time with their families with the management’s approval two days before the India match.
All the players were in their rooms Saturday night prior to the match on Sunday. No cricketers broke the curfew, it added.
A video clip is doing rounds on social media has taken in which Pakistani cricketers including Shoaib Malik, Imam-ul-Haq, Wahab Raz and Imad Wasim can be seen relaxing and having fun in a Shisha bar with Indian tennis star, also Shoaib Malik’s wife Sania Mirza.
Sania Mirza also took to social media lashing out at the person who made the video viral of her family outing. Furious Mirza wrote:
“That’s the video you shot without asking us, disrespecting our privacy even though we had a child with us?& got told off for doing so,& u came up with this crap?FYI ‘outing’ was dinner & yes ppl are allowed to eat if they lose a match! Bunch of fools! Try better content nxt time”.
Pakistan team supporters are showing their dismay ever since the Sheesha Bar video went viral on social media.
Shoaib Malik out on zero. At 2am on Sunday, he was at the Winslow Road sheesha bar with his wife and mates. This was the kind of preparedness against India. Where’s the mighty ehsan mani and IK’s promise of taking pak cricket to new heights in Naya Pakistan pic.twitter.com/tW3ay3TaNV

Pakistani were found in "Sheesha Bar" till the whole night before the match day. Suna hai they remained there til 4am.
But it had all started when Moin Khan went to Casino for lunch in New Zealand and no step taken by @TheRealPCB

Andrew flintoff was found.drinking on a boat a night before the match in 2007 WC and he was dropped. Here our so called star players are smoking a night before match with their wives. There should be serious reprimanding on this alone. pic.twitter.com/Icq4i5c674
