Shahid Afridi has been in the news lately for all the wrong reasons. After his hate speech against India and PM Modi, he has proved to everyone that his personality is just like his batting. It was the same person who said in 2011 that he gets more love in India than in Pakistan. Hence, the comparisons between his batting and personality as both seem to be inconsistent and irresponsible.
Due to Afridi’s provocation, Harbhajan Singh and Yuvraj Singh had to face the heat of Twitterati as it was just a week ago when they had asked the people of India to donate to Shahid Afridi’s charity for the fight against Coronavirus.
The duo have tried to diffuse the situation by putting out statements and videos where they have criticised Afridi and promised to severe any relationship they had with him. In fact Bhajji said “This is very upsetting what Shahid Afridi has come up with, talking ill about our country and our Prime Minister. This is just not acceptable. To be honest, he (Afridi) asked us to make an appeal for his charity. In good faith, we did it for humanity and for the people suffering due to the Coronavirus.”
