Pakistan fast bowler Hasan Ali has apologized for the dropped catch in the match against Australia in the T20 World Cup semifinal, stating he was disappointed and vowed to come back stronger.

Ali has been viciously abused on social media after dropping Wade's catch. In the second semi-final, when David Warner and Maxwell fell in successive overs from Shadab Khan, the chase of 177 seemed a distanced dream but then Stoinis and Wade put on 81 in 7.4 overs.

In the penultimate over of the final match between Pakistan and Australia, Ali dropped the catch of Australia batter Matthew Wade, who then smoked three sixes in three balls to win the match for his team.

"I know you all are upset because my performance didn't meet your expectations but not more disappointed than me. Don't change your expectations from me. I want to serve Pakistan cricket at the highest level possible, so back to hard work,” Ali tweeted.

"This patch will make me stronger. Thank you for all the messages, tweets, posts, calls and duas (prayers) - needed them," he added.

Australia will take on New Zealand in the final of the T20 World Cup in Dubai on Sunday.
