Boom Boom Afridi has reacted on Kapil Dev’s reply to Shoaib Akhtar’s suggestion to keep an Indo-Pak bilateral series to raise funds for the fight against Covid-19.
Last week the Rawalpindi express had suggested a 3 match ODI series to be played between the sub-continental arch rivals in order to raise funds. Kapil Dev had said that the safety of the players is of prime importance and therefore there was no question of a series being played. In a slightly controversial take, India’s World Cup winning captain had said “We have enough money”, suggesting that the BCCI didn’t need a series to fill it’s coffers.
Shahid Afridi took offence to the statement and said that he didn’t expect this from the Indian legend and further went on to say that these are difficult times where the whole region has to talk positively.
