Hanif Muhammad, one of the most revered Pakistani cricketers of all time, passed away on Thursday after battling with cancer. His death is being mourned globally and Rishi Kapoor took to Twitter to do the same -- in the worst way possible.
Hanif Muhammad passes away at 81
Rishi tweeted saying he had seen Little Master get out to Ramakant Bhikaji, who was a fast Indian bowler.

Cricket’s original Little Master dies
The Bobby actor is famous for his controversial tweets and inappropriate humor but this time he went too far by not respecting someone who just passed away.
Needless to say, fans weren't happy with his tweet.
Where were u when he scored triple century..?

@chintskap -You watched matches in d stadia? Strange. Your body or its language don't suggest you ever been a sports person.
@chintskap i recall him as a man you missed scoring 500. So near and yet too far.

@chintskap Sir this was the biggest appeal in his career and declared not out. He is still at the crease.

Maybe it's time to take a break from Twitter, Rishi.
