Pakistan batsman, Umar Akmal found himself in a sticky spot after getting trolled by fans on the internet. This was after he posted a picture of himself, standing next to a silver Bentley car with a caption, “Enjoying London after hard work”. However, fans on the internet took this an opportunity to have a laugh and also questioned what was the hard work that he did. Incidentally, after posting the image on social media Umar Akmal had even requested users not to make any sort of negative comments. But his appeal fell on deaf ears. “I Love all my fans. A humble request to all fans please refrain from negative comments. Your prayers and support is always appreciated,” he wrote. Allegedly, Akmal has been working on his fitness in London in a bid to comeback into the national setup.
