Former cricketer Shahid Afridi has been making some controversial statements in the recent past relating to political tensions between India and Pakistan. Afridi has once again made a controversial statement.
“The federal government of Pakistan is at all times prepared however with the current regime [in India] there aren’t any such probabilities of [resuming] cricket relations, of [Pakistan-India] sequence. With Modi in energy, I don’t see it’s going to occur,” Shahid Afridi was quoted as saying by Arab Information.
Earlier, Afridi made derogatory comments about the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and also went on to say that he wanted to play his last PSL innings for the Kashmir team during his visit to POK.
Afridi’s comments though didn’t really go well with some Indian cricketers. After Gautam Gambhir, Harbhajan too slammed the all-rounder. Bhajji bunltly said that he had crossed all the limits and the relations between the two cricketers are now ruined up. “I thought he was our friend but this not how a friend behaves. Ye badtameezi hai (It’s rude),” Bhajji said Harbhajan said on Sports Tak.
Harbhajan and Yuvraj Singh had earlier faced a backlash on social media for urging people to make donations for Shahid Afridi’s Foundation.
The two players have urged the public to play their role in the fight against COVID-19 by making donations for the SAFoundation and the gesture from the two cricketers hasn’t gone great with the common people.
