In the latest tweet uploaded on Saturday afternoon, Hafeez remarked "Shallow minded approach has EXPOSED."
Shallow minded approach EXPOSED!— Mohammad Hafeez (@MHafeez22) February 13, 2021
Earlier, tense arguments between the two colleagues and national cricketers have set ablaze the internet with supporters from both sides weighing in their arguments, opinions and comments.
It all started when Mohammad Hafeez in his tweet said: “Congratulations @iMRizwanPak on scoring T20 Hundred points. U r a Star shining star Glowing star Wonder how long u need to prove that u r NO1 wicketkeeper/Batsman in Pakistan in all formats of the game. Just asking”

Things took an ugly turn when Sarfaraz Ahmed on Saturday responded by saying: “Hafeez bhai Sb, whoever has played for Pakistan from Imtiaz Ahmed, Wasim Bari, Tasleem Arif to Saleem Yousuf and from Moin Khan, Rashid Latif to Kamran Akmal and even Rizwan right now has always been number ONE for the country and have been respected accordingly.”

Here are some of the comments from the twitteratis:
This type of statement shows that no matter however senior you may be as an international player, ethics, etiquettes and manners don’t necessarily come merely with age. If you are biased and prejudiced, you will continue doing this for no reason.— Dr. Erfan Syed Asif (@ErfanAsif) February 12, 2021
Would have been better if you had rated him a better opener and batsman then yourself. Imagine you, Hafeez, the once Dale Steyn’s bunny!!— Dr. Erfan Syed Asif (@ErfanAsif) February 12, 2021
Hes saying the truth. When the Karachi media used to bash Rizwan all day, where were you then?— Huzaima Bhatty (@BhattyHuzaima) February 11, 2021
The difference is that media outlets did that. Over here we are talking about a former cricketer who won us the champions trophy and the under19 wc. He is our hero, criticising that how long will it take means he wants to drop sarfraz or leave out his chances to play?.— Muhammad Jawad Khan (@JawadMjk) February 13, 2021
کتنا بغض ہے ان لوگوں میں ۔صرف یہی وجہ ہے جو اس کھیل “ کرکٹ “ کو اب میں دیکھنا پسند نہیں کرتی ۔ یہ پنجابی کرکٹر سوائے تعصب ۔نفرت اور بغض کے اپنے دل میں کچھ نہیں رکھتے ۔اللہ کرے جیسا حال ہاکی کا ہوا ہے وہی کرکٹ کا ہو تاکہ اس منحوس تعصبی کھیل سے بھی قوم کو نجات ملے ۔آمین ثمہ آمین— گڑیا صدیقی (@kooldjrian2) February 12, 2021
