After a forgettable outing at the 2023 World Cup in India, Pakistan fast bowler Hasan Ali encountered another challenging series in Australia. While the speedster was dropped from the series-opener, he picked up just two wickets across four innings of the subsequent two matches in Melbourne and Sydney.

His listless spells, coupled with underperforming Pakistan batters eventually led to a 0-3 series defeat for the visitors at the hands of Australia.

Hasan Ali’s trip ‘Down Under’ worsened even further considering he was spotted taking on a rowdy Pakistan fan at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) after his side’s eight-wicket humiliation in the final Test.

Hasan Ali was the only player from either side to walk over to the fans for signing autographs after the conclusion of the SCG Test. As it turned out, the cricketer was instantly heckled by a certain Pakistan fan in the crowd.

In a video going viral across social media, the Pakistan fan can be heard mocking Hasan Ali for his dropped catches. 

The fan shouted: “Idhar aao, me tumhe catch pakadna sikhau.” (Come here, let me teach you how to catch). 

The 29-year-old fast bowler was quick to respond to the heckler, as he replied: “Aa jao idhar aao. Aa jao idhar. Kisse sikhana hai catch pakadna?” (Sure, come here. Who will you teach how to catch?)

Notably, Hasan Ali has been receiving widespread criticism for dropping an easy chance off Australian batter Matthew Wade in the semifinal of the 2021 T20 World Cup. His catching blunder proved to be costly for Pakistan, as Wade thwacked three successive sixes off Shaheen Afridi in the subsequent three deliveries to crash the ‘Men in Green’ out of the competition.

Coming back to the SCG Test, Pakistan secured a handy 14-run first innings lead after Aamer Jamal’s six-fer dismantled hosts Australia for just 299 on Day 3.

However, the visitors failed to pile on the momentum by folding up for just 115 in their second innings by Day 4.

Australia, in response, hunted down their 130-run task with much ease. Outbound opener David Warner and number three Marnus Labuschagne both listed dazzling half-centuries in the run-chase to seal the three-match series 3-0.
