During the game, Hassan Ali upon learning that Shadab’s favourite “junk food: is pizza said, “Pizza is not junk food it’s good for recovery.”
As people started trolling him on social media, Bhabis Sania Mirza and Ebba Qureshi came to his rescue and taught netizens about the hidden quality of pizza.
“He is actually right ! It’s very good recovery specially after long and hard matches .. not the full cheesy one but the gourmet ones are definitely very good .. the carbs are necessary and needed for recovery,” Sania Mirza, wife of Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik, wrote while replying to a troll.
Former Pakistan cricketer Azhar Mahmood’s wife Ebba Qureshi too supported him and said that pizzas are actually good for recovery “because of the carbs”, especially after a game.
