LONDON: Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi has once again lashed out at his old nemesis ex-Indian opening batsman Gautam Gambhir for his remarks regarding the cricketing relationships between the two sides.
“Do you think Gautam used his wits while talking about this? Does this look like something which a sensible person would say? Do educated people talk like this?” said Afridi during a press conference.
The statement comes in light of Gambhir’s recent remarks. He said that India should not play with Pakistan in the upcoming World Cup 2019, even if the two sides meet at the World Cup finals.
“We can’t play with the sentiments of our country,” Gambhir said while talking to Zee News Hindi. “Two points are not important than the lives of our soldiers but for this, the entire country needs to be on the same page. We should have the courage to lose points even it’s the first match or the finals.”
“Even if we boycott playing the World Cup final against Pakistan, the country must stand together, there can’t be a difference of opinions,” added Gambhir.
