Shahid Afridi recalls infamous episode of Shoaib Akhtar hitting Asif with a bat

LONDON – Akhtar had previously talked about the incident in his autobiography, Controversially Yours, where he accused Afridi of aggravating the situation.

In 2007, reports surfaced that former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar had hit his teammate Mohammed Asif with a bat. The reports were confirmed later and Akhtar was called back from the 2007 ICC World T20 in South Africa. It is one of the most controversial incidents in cricket and Akhtar has always been the controversy’s favourite child.

Akhtar had previously talked about the incident in his autobiography, Controversially Yours, where he accused Afridi of aggravating the situation.

“Afridi was aggravating the situation and I swung the bat at both of them. Afridi ducked, but Asif couldn’t get out of the way, the bat struck him on his thighs and he collapsed. I had lost it. I had never behaved like this, especially in the dressing room,” wrote Shoaib.

Now, Afridi has also touched upon the incident in an interview. Afridi denied aggravating the situation.

“Things happen,” Afridi told.
