Pakistani Twitter is collectively apologising to Haris Rauf after his amazing World Cup performance

Yesterday was the deadline to submit your apology form. Did you turn yours in?
27 Oct, 2021

The Pakistan versus New Zealand stand-off was a lot of things for fans everywhere — massively entertaining, a test of nerves and a revelation that we've been undermining Haris Rauf as a bowler so far. The nation saw Rauf take four glorious wickets Tuesday night and they have been scrambling to Twitter to issue apology memes ever since.

While the run chase proved difficult for Pakistan's batting line in the second half of the match, we were still able to score a win, one reason being the four wickets Haris Rauf took against New Zealand. Apologies began to be issued as soon as Rauf began to dazzle us with his game. The man played a massive hand in saving our hearts from getting broken and his haters started crumbling left, right and centre.

If fans still had doubts about Rauf's bowling genius till the third wicket, those doubts were wiped away after the fourth one.

Apologies forms were instantly issued on Twitter and people were urged to cite their reasons for wrongly hating on Rauf as well as promising to never do it again.

People began to fill out the forms alright and midnight was the deadline to submit it.

People included cricketers Asif Ali and Shoaib Malik into the form as well after they held up Pakistan's batting.

Or perhaps just apologising to Ali and Rauf will do. Sorry Malik, you've had a number of years to redeem yourself already. These lads are still early in their careers.

Was an apology form enough though?

Let us also apologise for undermining both his skills as well as his confidence in giving interviews in Urdu. Talented AND no colonial complex? We stan.

Both apologies and love were thrown at our saviour.

In fact, Rauf was 'promoted' to a Brigadier level army officer as soon as he left the stadium in Sharjah. His Wikipedia page has been updated accordingly.

Rauf ultimately taught fans a valuable lesson. Do not be quick to judge a player and undermine their potential, especially when they're only at the start of their careers. We hope all our players will soon come to prove all their haters wrong.

Only the Rauf bowling is the best answer against Indian & New Zealand teams. Currently T20 World Cup.(2021) Beware against remaining matches also.

I’m on the list of apologetic persons as well, although I never doubted the kid’s skill and dedication. Best wishes Haris Rauf.

If you consider that at the last T20WC nobody had heard of Haris Rauf, this guy only started bowling with a real cricket ball 3 years ago, what a incredible story for him to being leading the attack with SSA for his country. I am proud that my Motherland has such fantastic talent hidden in every corner Shame on the PCB for not discovering such talent. Hopefully R.Raja will encourage such talent hunts to find more like Haris.

Our adorations are always fickle all that is required is to lose a couple of matches heroes will turn into zeros.

He bowled well but that does not take away the fact he has been bowling rubbish before this.

He is hard to play. Similar to Malinga

We salute to our hero Harris Sohail who raised Pakistan flag high and all our viewers should come forward and second your opinion.(Texas)

@Mumtaz Ahmed Shah - You've mentioned the wrong Haris mate. I believe you meant to say Haris Rauf!
Faz Oct 28, 2021 12:51pm
@Akil Akhtar - I agree he's been inconsistent at times but, he's only behind Rashid Khan when it comes to taking wickets in T20s in the last couple of years if I'm not mistaken!
