Selfie King Ahmed Shehzad went off on a rant on Twitter against those who have criticized his habit of taking selfies, saying his fans love him no matter what.

The batsman clarified that selfies were a way to stay connected with his fans.

He further substantiated his claim by naming American President Barack Obama.

The Pakistan opening batsman went on to thank his fans for always supporting him.

And he also had a name for his selfies.

Shehzad also urged his fans to promote the hashtag #FansAreInHeart.

Shehzad was criticised for putting up a selfie-show with Shahid Afridi before the 2015 World Cup where Pakistan team started off their campaign on a very bad note with two losses in their first two matches.

The cricketer continued his 'Shelfie' streak at the recent T20 match between Pakistan and Zimbabwe in Lahore, and it was captured on film:

Yousafzai Khan | 5 years ago | Reply | Recommend As a nation we are so sentimental about cricket that if someone is not performing for a while, we can go into any extent. This selfie thing is a personal matter, so was Moeen khan's dinner at a Casino restaurant.
