Discarded Pakistan batsman posted a picture of him, posing next to Bentley, on Twitter. However, the right-handed batsman got trolled badly for it as Twitterati found it funny. Akmal is in England and has been working hard on his fitness.
Akmal tweeted the picture and wrote, “Enjoying London after hard work.” The 27-year-old hardly knew he would get trolled so bad on the social networking site. His picture has over 100 retweets and over 2000 likes, but it is the replies that stand out. Also Read- Hardik Pandya Reveals New Look, Praises Celebrity Stylist Hakim Aalim

Here are some of the replies he received
After receiving not so positive responses, Akmal once again took to Twitter and made an appeal to the fans. He wrote, “I Love all my fans. A humble request to all fans please refrain from negative comments. Your prayers and support is always appreciated.”
Akmal, who was initially part of the Pakistan’s squad for the ICC Champions Trophy, was later ruled out after failing two fitness test. The batsman was even sent back home from London, and Haris Sohail was named as his replacement.
Akmal since then has been working hard on his fitness and is looking to make his way back into the Pakistan side.
