In the video, the Zalmi captain is seen offended by fans continually calling out his name. At one point, some fans even called the bowler ‘parchi’, which angered Wahab. To express his anger, the Zalmi player approached the fans at the enclosure of the stadium.
Confronting the fans, the furious bowler asked:
Someone just yelled out ‘parchi’. Who was it?
It should be noted that “parchi” is a derogatory term that some fans have previously used to refer to Zalmi opener Imam ul Haq.
Imam was criticized often by fans who accused the chief selector Inzamam ul Haq of including Imam in the squad based on his relationship with the left-handed batsman.
