After losing the World Cup match against India on 16 June in Manchester, Pakistani players have come under scrutiny of the internet. And now, the spat has extended to Pakistani actor Veena Malik and ace Indian tennis player Sania Mirza, who is married to Pakistan all-rounder Shoaib Malik.

Recently, a video of Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik at a restaurant with their new-born son surfaced online. When Sania noticed the video, she reprimanded the fan for invading their privacy, and wrote, ''That’s the video you shot without asking us, disrespecting our privacy even though we had a child with us?& got told off for doing so,& u came up with this crap? FYI ‘outing’ was dinner & yes ppl are allowed to eat if they lose a match!Bunch of fools!Try better content nxt time.''

Veena, reacting to the now deleted video, questioned Sania’s parenting. The actress tweeted, ''Sania, I am actually so worried for the kid. You guys took him to a sheesha place isn’t it hazardious?''

Reacting to Veena's claim, Sania tweeted, "Veena, I hav not taken my kid to a sheesha place. Not that it’s any of your or the rest of the world’s business cause I think I care bout my son a lot more than anyone else does :) secondly I am not Pakistan cricket team’s dietician nor am I their mother or principal or teacher."

Later Mirza seemed to have mellowed down and while trying to end the discussion she wrote: "Thank you for your concern though. Means a lot.''

Shoaib Malik also came out in defense of the team and clarified that the video was of some other day. Shoaib tweeted, "When will Pak media be accountable for their credibility by our courts?! Having served my country for +20 years in Intl Cricket, it’s sad that I have to clarify things related to my personal life. The videos are from 13th June and not 15th."
