Haris Rauf ‘s alleged tweet
In the viral tweet from the account with the username Haris Rauff, there are some peculiar comments made about the speedster’s performance and reasons for not playing red-ball cricket.
“Few days back I was criticized and ridiculed for performing terribly in the worldcup, most of the social media experts wanted me to be dropped from the 50 overs white ball team but now suddenly they want me to play test cricket without any physical and mental preparation. Hypocrite, Test cricket is not only about bowling 10 12 overs per day, you have to stay in the field for 90 overs a day and In Australia the weather is extremely hot during December. My body has been on the run from last 6 months and would have broken down there for sure. Keep in mind that we have 5 matches t20is series coming up after the Australian tour.” the tweet quotes.
