National cricket team’s leg-spinner Usama Mir has revealed that trolls verbally abused him through private messages for dropping David Warner’s catch in the ODI World Cup played in India in September last year.

While talking to Geo Super, Usama Mir said “We could not give a good performance during the matches in India, which is a pity”.

He continued: “I dropped David Warner’s catch, but it was one that anyone could catch. Later, people’s reaction was extremely bad. Some people used bad words for me on social media, and some used private messages and verbally abused me”.


Usama said, “People make you Don Bradman with one performance but with a bad performance these same people make you fall. Pakistanis should support us because we are playing for our country, not for any other country.”

During the 18th match of the World Cup, first Usama Mir and then Abdullah Shafiq dropped David Warner’s catch when the batsman was on 10 runs. Usama Mir caught Warner on Shaheen Afridi’s ball. Warner scored 163 runs off 124 balls with the help of 9 sixes and 14 fours and won the Player of the¬†Match¬†award.
