Pakistan batter Fakhar Zaman showed great sportsman spirit as decided to walk off after edging a delivery from Avesh Khan to the wicket-keeper in the high voltage Asia Cup clash between India and Pakistan in Dubai on Sunday.  Pakistan had already lost the wicket of captain Babar Azam early and Fakhar looked in good touch before edging a short delivery to Karthik in the last over of the powerplay.

Neither Karthik, nor Avesh, the bowler, appealed as the edge was very faint. Fakhar though took the walk and umpire raised his finger with Pakistan losing its second wicket for 42 runs as he departed for 10 off 6 deliveries.

Fakhar’s decision earned him a lot of praise from fans on Twitter. Here are some of the reaction.
