India-born Netherlands cricketer Vikramjit Singh has been collecting hate ever since he posted praising Pakistani cricketers Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan. He shared that he met the Big two batters of modern-era cricket to gather some batting tips after the first ODI against Pakistan.
He praised the gesture, defining well manners and sportsmanship of the two cricketers. While, some Indians came across his post, bashing their own country fellow, who represents Netherlands Cricket Team.
After the match I met Babar Azam and request him to guide me about cricket. Believe me, he and Rizwan spoke to me with such good manners and explained to me as if they were my brothers
Here are the tweets:
Koi Pakistani ka hi account hai,lanat hai aisi harkat karta hai

Vikramjit was quick to note lashes against him for praising Pakistani counterparts and responded in another tweet. He has schooled his Indian fellows with love saying the good gestures should be appreciated instead of showing hate.
He further narrated that Indians have been falling in his private messages to abuse him since he praised Babar and Rizwan. Exploding after bearing intense, inappropriate language from his own fellows, he stated that one should spread love through sports.
He penned out,
Ever since I made this tweet, some people from my beloved country India have been abusing me in my inbox asking why I praised Rizwan and Babar Azam. See we are two countries, our language, lifestyle & generosity are quite similar We should live with each other with love & affection. And I think we can share love through sports
And I think we can share love through sports.
IND 🇮🇳 🤝 Pak 🇵🇰
