Indian pacer Mohammed Shami was left fuming after a Pakistani fan used some objectionable language against the Indian players. The incident happened when Indian team players were returning to the dressing room after the presentation ceremony following their defeat against the arch-rivals Pakistan in the final match of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 cricket tournament at the Oval in London on June 18.

Mohammed Shami, who just played the warm-up matches during the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, angrily turned while walking towards the dressing room and asked the Pakistani fan to repeat what he said. Meanwhile MS Dhoni, former Indian skipper, intervened and asked Shami to ignore the comments and silently move upstairs and not react to the abusive fan.
