Watch: Shoaib Malik’s ‘Muslim’ reference lands him into trouble

New Delhi: Shoaib Malik created a controversy while answering a question posed by a fan on Friday during video interaction with fans.

When asked who he felt was the best bowler in the Indian team, Malik said, “The best bowler in the Indian team is Mohammad Shami. Not because he is Muslim. I have seen his bowling and played against him also. For me I find him tough. That’s why.”

Malik’s answer didn’t go down too well with fans, who felt the 35-year-old should have refrained from referring to Shami’s religion while answering the question. The following are the few reactions by the users of twitter.
