Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has made a shocking statement about spinner Danish Kaneria’s career.
Akhtar while talking during the chat show ‘Game on Hai’ said, “In my career, the number of times I have had to argue with people regarding the issues of Karachi, Punjab, Peshawar is outrageous. People used to ask questions like, ‘Why are you eating (with us) here?’ to Hindu players like Danish Kaneria.”

“I used to reply to those players, ‘How would you feel if I took your food from your house and forced to make you eat outside?’” Akhtar added.
Kaneria played for Pakistan between 2000 and 2010 and was only the second Hindu player to play for Pakistan after Anil Dalpat, a wicketkeeper who played in the 1980s.
