Fans came up with hilarious memes and Gifs to take potshots at the cricketer.
Here is how he got brutally trolled:
Not long ago, he has landed in hot water after reportedly misbehaving with staff during a fitness test. At Pakistan’s National Cricket Academy (NCA), Umar has been alleged to have exposed himself after falling short of a fitness standard test.
During the skin-fold test, the wicketkeeper-batsman exposed himself by reportedly asking his trainer, “Where is the fat?”
The matter was reported to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and he now faces the prospect of being banned from the next domestic season.
