ICC has withdrawn umpire Aleem Dar from the India vs South Africa series. Also, the duo of Pakistani commentators, Wasim Akram and Shoaib Akhtar, are set to depart for Mumbai after the 4th ODI in Chennai, and will not be commentating in the 5th ODI at Mumbai. All this is a result of what Shiv Sena did. Here are the twitter reactions:
Wasim Akram & Shoaib Akhtar keep making millions of buck in India and your country keep backstabbing us. Not fair! Feel the pain of loosing

Am I the only one who’s gonna miss Shoaib Akhtar’s hilarious commentary? Damn, these political parties and their politics!

I feel like thanking ShivSena. Thanks a lot for allowing us to watch a match without painful commentary of Shoaib Akhtar

Pakistani Aleem Dar can’t officiate in Mumbai, SriLankan Dharmasena can’t officiate in Chennai. Let’s call Steve Bucknor & screw ourselves.

Aleem Dar removed from #INDvSA series. Then stop Atif Aslam, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Adnan Sami, Ali Zafar, Fawad Khan too, you bigots.

People outraging on Shiv Sena not letting Aleem Dar umpire in Mumbai, please do outrage on AIADMK not letting Dharmasena umpire in Chennai.

I have had the privilege of knowing @wasimakramlive very well. I wish people could see the enormous love & respect he has received in India

Wasim Akram, Shoaib Akhtar will not comentate during 5th ODI Is it happening in a country following “Atithi Devo Bhava”? Are we civilised?

Captains changed. Leaders changed. Regimes changed. Game itself changed. But saala #indvPak will always have the shiv sena element it seems.
