ICC Champions Trophy 2017 Final: Pakistan fan's 'who's your daddy' comment riles up Mohammed Shami
Emotions ran high after Pakistan demolished arch-rivals India to lift their maiden ICC Champions Trophy at The Oval on Sunday. Pakistan, who were ranked No.8 team in the world and never really had a chance of winning, scripted a remarkable turnaround in the tournament to prove the critics wrong. On Sunday, Pakistan dominated the defending champions in all the aspects of the game and inflicted a crushing 180-run defeat on India.
Soon after the game, thrilled Pakistan supporters celebrated the triumph by singing from the Oval stand, while some took the streets of London to celebrate. The last time Pakistan won a major 50-over ICC tournament was also during Ramadan, the Muslim holy month, when Imran Khan led his team over England in the 1992 final at Melbourne, Australia.
However, some of the Pakistan fans at The Oval went over the board with their celebrations and made some derogatory comments towards the Indian team which was returning to the dressing room after the loss. Some Pakistan supporters even mocked India captain Virat Kohli along with a few other players, who didn't respond to the comments.
But fast bowler Mohammed Shami couldn't control his anger after a Pakistan supporter mocked the team by shouting "Baap kaun Hai" (Who's your daddy). A visibly upset Shami came down a few steps to confront the Pakistan fan.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who was walking behind Shami, saw the entire matter and quickly took the fast bowler away.
