Pakistan’s pacer Haris Rauf reacted after a video of his altercation with a fan went viral on social media saying that he will not hesitate to respond when it comes to his family.

Rauf was accompanied by his wife when he furiously charged towards a fan despite those around him, including his wife, trying to stop.

The pacer wanted to confront the fan face-to-face but he was stopped by people around him. After some exchange of words, the fan walked away.

The video went viral on social media in no time and Rauf, who initially did not want to bring the matter on social media, broke his silence stating that it is normal to get criticised as a cricketer but it is important to show respect towards families.

He also made it clear that he will “not hesitate” to respond accordingly when it comes to his parents and family.

“I decided not to bring this on social media, But now that the video is out, I feel it is necessary to address the situation. As public figures, we are open to receiving all kinds of feedback from the public. They are entitled to support or criticize us,” Haris wrote on X.

“Nevertheless, when it comes to my parent and my family, I will not hesitate to respond accordingly. It is important to show respect towards people and their families, irrespective of their professions.”

It is worth mentioning that Haris Rauf was part of Pakistan’s squad for the T20 World Cup 2024 where the Green Shirts were knocked out from the group stage.

Pakistan lost to the United States (USA) and India in their first two matches of the T20 World Cup which put them in a tough spot to qualify for the Super 8 of the tournament.

Pakistan needed the USA to defeat Ireland on June 14 but the match was called off due to excessive rain in Lauderhill, Florida and Pakistan’s journey in the T20 World Cup ended right there
