Cricket was shook by another unfortunate incident when a young Pakistan batsman Zubair Ahmed died after being struck by a bouncer during a domestic match in Mardan. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) took to social media to announce this sad news. The Twitter release stated “Tragic death of Zubair Ahmed is another reminder that safety gear i.e. helmet must be worn at all times. Our sympathies with Zubair’s family,”.
The incident occurred on August 14, which coincides with Pakistan’s Independence Day.
Zubair featured in 4 List A matches & represented the T20 team Quetta Bears.
Earlier on the same day, Australian vice-captain David Warner retired hurt after being struck in the neck by a lethal bouncer during a warm-up match ahead of the upcoming Bangladesh tour.
A focus on player safety has been the highest priority since the tragic death of Australian batsman Phillip Hughes three years back in 2014.
Hughes, who played twenty six Tests, died from bleeding on the brain in November 2014 after being struck on the lower part of the skull by a rising ball from fast bowler Sean Abbott during a domestic match at the SCC in Sydney.
Hughes however was wearing the prescribed protective head gear but the ball struck him at the back of the head under the helmet.

Rishi Kapoor vs Pakistani Women Twitter War over Kulbhushan Jadhav conviction. It is all over the news that Pakistan has declared death penalty to former Indian Navy officer Kulbhushan Jadhav under the alleged charges of spying. Rishi Kapoor is amongst many others who are not supporting the decision and has not minced his words while on a social media platform.
The acclaimed actor got slammed for voicing his opinion on Twitter. The actor was merely trying to spell out the facts from the Indian perspective. Through his tweets he did state that India was always trying to broker peace, through actors, films, sports etc., with Pakistan, but only got hatred in return! He emphasized in hindi that it takes 2 hands to clap.
The reaction from few Pakistani users was shocking with numerous hate tweets targeted towards Rishi Kapoor. This is what Verteran actor Rishi Kapoor for just being honest and speaking his mind!
However Rishi Kapoor too gave it back to the haters in equal brevity but at no stage did he cross the boundaries of web decency. Most of the hate tweets were abusive in nature and it was surprisingly from Pakistani women!
Rishi Kapoor is not new to Twitter controversies, as it has happened many times in the past too with him right at the epicenter. However, Rishi Kapoor had earlier stated that he will not turn a blind eye to hate tweets that are abusive. He will give it back to the people appropriately and will spare no effort to expose them.
Rishi Kapoor was furious that these people who abuse him are actually his followers on Twitter. On one hand they are his followers and on the other other they abuse him, totally hypocritical. Why do you follow someone if you have abusive thoughts of about him. The Kapoor’s anger is justified and we feel that his backlash in this instance was quite the order of the day!
