Islamabad: Tennis star Sania Mirza and Pakistani actress Veena Malik indulged in a war of words on Twitter following Pakistan’s humiliating loss to India in their World Cup encounter in Manchester on Sunday.

While social media platforms were flooded with memes and trolls about Pakistan, some natives also had strong opinions against the Pakistani cricket team after the 89-run defeat.

A video was circulated on Twitter showing Sania Mirza’s son Izhaan with his parents and some members of the Pakistan cricket team. Reacting to the fan video, Veena Malik tweeted questioning Sania’s parenting stating, “Sania, I am actually so worried for the kid. You guys took him to a sheesha place isn’t it Hazardious? (sic) Also as far as I know Archie’s is all about junk food which isn’t good for athletes/Boys. You must know well as you are mother and athlete yourself?”

Sania Mirza quickly hit back by saying that she cares about her son a “lot more than anyone else does”.

Veena Malik also took a dig at Sania Mirza’s husband, Shoaib Malik’s junk food habits. Mirza however, clawed back by saying, “I am not Pakistan cricket team’s dietitian nor am I their mother or principal or teacher.”

Retweeting a video shared by Veena Malik, which is no longer available, Sania Mirza said the video was shot without permission.

The spat got uglier after Veena Malik tweeted that she was blocked by the tennis star. Veena Malik also stated that Mirza deleted her tweet in which she had mentioned about a magazine featuring the Pakistani actress.

Interestingly, the Pakistan Cricket Board has come out with a clarification that the photos of the players dining and partying till late on the eve of the high-voltage clash are actually not from the eve of the game.

Shoaib Malik on Monday also issued a stern clarification and established his stance after infuriated fans came down heavily at him and other Pakistani cricketers for videos that showed them having a laidback time at a Shisha café late at night before the crucial World Cup encounter.

Malik slammed the Pakistani media for sensationalizing and distorting facts purporting to his personal life and said that the videos doing rounds were from June 13 and not June 15, the night before the match.

He also urged the media to not drag his and his team’s personal lives into “petty” squalor.
