Pakistan's right-arm pacer Haris Rauf got into an ugly and heated exchange with a Pakistani fan in the streets of the USA after exiting from the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. 

Haris Rauf, who was an integral part of the Pakistani team, had a very disappointing end to the tournament, which was supposed to be successful. Babar Azam and co. got knocked out of the Group stages, something that happened for the first time in the competition's history.

From former Pakistan cricketers to their fans worldwide, everyone has come together to voice their opinion against the current system. It was the reason behind the fan's agitation, who took it quite too far by taunting Haris Rauf in the middle of a busy street. In the video, which is now going viral across all social media platforms, Raug can be seen getting aggressive with his wife by his side. 

What happened?

It looked as if Haris Rauf was approaching his hotel with his wife when a few fans, with one wearing a Pakistani jersey, passed on some comments.

The fast bowler was angry and irritated at the fan who was wearing the National jersey. Rauf was on one side of the street while the fans were on the other. 

Upon hearing some nasty taunts, Haris Rauf could not control his anger and started to aggressively drag his wife, who was trying to stop him from getting into it. Rauf's wife made several attempts to stop him but the pacer had anger and frustration flowing in his veins. 

Haris Rauf jumped over the other side of the bushes, discarded his wife's plea to stop, and went straight up to the fan.

Two men tried to tell Rauf to calm down but the 30-year-old was in a mood to fight. If there was no one to stop him, then Rauf, who conceded the Shot of the Century, would have even hit the fan. 

In the closing seconds of the video, Haris Rauf can be heard asking the fan in Hindi whether his Parents have given him a good foundation or not.

This fight also underlines the behavioral issue that Rauf is infamous for. Being a good cricketer to win tournaments is not enough alone as one has to be a good person as well. 

Given the fact that he is a senior cricketer, Haris Rauf could have handled the situation with much more calmness and maturity.

It is also unclear as to what the fan told Rauf that agitated the pacer in such a way that he was down to fight. Any official statement from the player or the board is yet to come but one thing is certain, there could be some aftermath.
