Former Pakistan captain and decorated fast bowler, known for his reverse swinging and toe crushing Yorkers has had enough of the Shahid Afridi and Gautam Gambhir fight. Sounding like the elder statesman that he is now, Waqar said that it would be best for the two to catch up and talk it out in order to bury the hatchet and move on.
“The banter between Gautam Gambhir and Shahid Afridi has been going on for a while now. I think they both got to be smart, sensible, and calm down. It has been going on for way too long. My advise to them is to maybe catch up somewhere around the world and talk it out if you cannot really calm it down,” Waqar said during an interaction on chat series “Q20” on GloFans.
“In social media, if you carry on that, people are going to love it and people are enjoying it and that I feel that they both should be sensible and smart,” the current Pakistani bowling coach added. However it remains to be seen if these constant barbs exchanged would cease as Afridi is also joining politics and has repeatedly provoked India in the recent times and Gambhir is already a successful politician.
