PCB Stands by Haris Rauf Amid Bullying Incident

Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Mohsin Naqvi, has firmly condemned the offensive behavior directed at ace fast bowler Haris Rauf and pledged full support for him in this unfortunate incident. Naqvi also warned of potential legal action against the individual responsible.

Incident Details
The incident took place in the United States of America (USA) where a cricket fan used offensive language towards Haris Rauf in a hotel or public place. The fan’s aggression was reportedly fueled by frustration over Pakistan cricket team’s early exit from the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024, co-hosted by the West Indies and USA.

Haris Rauf was a standout performer in the competition, tying with Muhammad Amir as the highest wicket-taker, having claimed seven wickets in four matches. Notably, Rauf delivered an impressive performance against India, taking 3-21, although Pakistan lost that match despite being in a strong position. The team finished third in the points table, behind the USA, who qualified with 5 points due to a better run-rate.

PCB’s Response
In a tweet on social media platform X (formerly Twitter), PCB Chief Mohsin Naqvi expressed his strong condemnation:

“Strongly condemn the appalling incident involving Haris Rauf. Such actions against our players are completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated. Those who are involved must immediately apologize to Haris Rauf, failing which we will pursue legal action against the individual responsible.”

Haris Rauf’s Reaction
Haris Rauf, who reached the milestone of 100 T20I wickets during the World Cup, addressed the incident through his own tweet on X. He highlighted the personal nature of the insults and emphasized the importance of respecting families:

“As public figures, we are open to receiving all kinds of feedback from the public. They are entitled to support or criticize us. Nevertheless, when it comes to my parents or my family, I will not hesitate to respond accordingly. It is important to show respect towards people and their families, irrespective of their professions.”

Support from the Cricketing Community
The cricketing community has rallied behind Haris Rauf, condemning the incident as unwarranted and unfortunate. Fellow cricketers and fans alike have expressed their solidarity, reinforcing the notion that personal attacks on players and their families are unacceptable.

This incident underscores the importance of maintaining respect and decorum, even in moments of frustration. The PCB’s firm stance and the support from the cricketing fraternity highlight a collective effort to uphold the dignity of players and their families.
