Renowned transport company Careem have got themselves in trouble after they tried to take a dig at Pakistan cricket team, Sarfraz Ahmed. Pakistan has been knocked out of the Asia Cup 2018 after a mediocre performance throughout the tournament. They were thrashed by India twice and that didn't please their supporters. Not only they struggled against their arch-rivals, but even Afghanistan was also on verge of a victory against a full strengthed Pakistan side. However, a match-saving innings from Shoaib Malik turned the game in their favor.
The case wasn't the same for Pakistan against Bangladesh. No one came in rescue for the men in green as the Mashrafe Murtaza-led side crushed them by 37 runs to make their way into the final of Asia Cup.
Sarfraz Ahmed had a poor outing not only with the captaincy but with the bat as well. But fans still have sympathy with him. It was shown when Careem, the Dubai based transportation company pulled his leg and offered to sign up with them.
"@SarfarazA_54 How about signing up as our Captain now? ????#AsiaCup2018," Careem wrote.
But the humor wasn't taken lightly by Pakistan fan. Already disturbed by the loss, they lashed out at Careem for, what they felt, a derogatory tweet towards their captain.
Here is how they reacted:
I am uninstalling Careem from now on there will be no Careem Ride from my side and will start using hashtag #BoycottCareem— ماہر لغویات (@alymasood) September 26, 2018
@JiqbalPK don’t tell me you were behind this awful tweet. Come on man this is just absurd. How would you like it if @SarfarazA_54 or anyone for that matter asked u to work for him as his chauffeur. @CareemPAK has totally lost it. @MudassirSheikha @Abdulla_Elyas— Niazi (@Niazi_Matador) September 26, 2018
