A video of Pakistan fast bowler Haris Rauf’getting involved in a heated verbal altercation with a fan in the USA has gone viral on social media.

While strolling, Rauf was apparently confronted by a fan whose comments enraged the cricketer.

Despite efforts from his wife and friends to restrain him, Rauf charged towards the fan.

The confrontation, recorded on video, shows Rauf referring to the fan as "Indian hoga" (he must be Indian), to which the fan retorted, "Pakistani hoon" (I am from Pakistan).

The exchange escalated, with both parties trading expletives before others intervened to prevent any physical altercation.

The team's exit without reaching the Super Eight round in the T20 World Cup has subjected the players to harsh criticism from fans and media alike.

Several key players, including captain Babar Azam, Mohammad Amir, Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Azam Khan, and Haris Rauf, have chosen to spend time in London with friends and family before returning to Pakistan.

There are also reports that some of these players might participate in local leagues in the United Kingdom.
