Ramiz Raja is a former Pakistani cricketer who works as a commentator in international cricket matches after his retirement. During his commentary in IPL matches in 2017, he got trolled on Twitter by Indians who accused him of having a patronizing voice whenever Pakistan inches closer.
Despite not being a member of the commentary team in ongoing IPL series, he landed in another Twitter trouble, this time with Pakistani cricket fans. This cricketer of yesteryear is following the series and he praised Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma for their gameplay. He tweeted:
An absolute cricket delight to see Rohit bat and have Kohli and AB De Villiers fight for supremacy in the field.. some class in the 30 range circle ⭕

The Pakistani cricket fans left no chance to convey their displeasure on his tweet. From asking him to ‘lick the toes’ of Indian’s to calling him ‘shameless,’ all kinds of comments started pouring in. Here are some of the tweets:
better go and lick their toes…sharam karo…they are not allowing you even in the field and you are always talking about them..I’m gonna unfollow you..

Come on guys what’s wrong in praising good play. It’s fact that IPL has some serious class that PSL misses even the atmosphere on the field
