Before facing the wrath, the 32-year-old bowler posted a picture on his Facebook page which further read as: “This girl is trouble #love #wifey.”
However, Pathan gave a befitting reply to the trolls on Monday by uploading the same picture on his official Twitter handle while stating people has often a thing say and their work is to always meddle in one’s personal happenings.
