People were ruthless…
And please tell your husband to not interfere until we have won the #WC19. Phir celebrations mai usko bhi dance Karne ka poora moqa milega
— Farhan Bashir (@I_m_Farru) June 26, 2019
And while many were trolling Shoaib Malik there were a few genuine fans who demanded respect for him:
Guys respect everyone please. Everyone has bad days. Don't tweet bad against him. If sarfaraz can be respected now bina kuch team ke liye kiye then why not shoaib. Repeat your players, they need support 🌸 https://t.co/H3cGcvJuAz
— Hermaine (@Hermxxni) June 23, 2019
Some shared how they jave been missing him:
Wish you best best best luck for come back again
— Malik Asad Aslam (@500Muhammad) June 23, 2019
Haris Sohail scoring top notch doesn't mean to curse/troll Shoaib Malik. A player doesn't get out of form himself. Bad patch is a part. Every player wants to end his career in the best of his abilities. Let this moment be of Haris as he proved well for team & respect💞
— A a M e r (@AaMir_Speaks) June 23, 2019
Many shared how he still is one of the best players:
shoain ki form dekhni hain tu last Asia cup dekh lena bai.jabh hr banda fail hova wahan iss ki batting dekhna par hum bhool jatay hain jaldi
— Irfan Nazeer🇵🇰عرفان (@r_irfann1986) June 24, 2019
A player who has already announced that this is his last World Cup. How can he do such foolish things? He's out of form. But not selling himself.
— ♡Gumnaam☆ (@Gumnam_TM) June 23, 2019
Someone even shared a video of him with his fans:
He is not performing well but look at this video he's always there for his fans❤ pic.twitter.com/Up0PHszZFr

Ups and downs are a part of life:
Not at all. @realshoaibmalik is the most fit and stylish player in Pakistan team. Don't forget about his performances for Pakistan's victory. There may be a hard time for him but like Pakistan, he also knows how to bounce back like always. Support him rather than doing this. 👍🏻
