Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi has been vocal against India and has repeatedly voiced his views, and has repeatedly been embroiled in a war of words with former India opener Gautam Gambhir.
Afridi recently faced a lot of scrutiny for his views on Kashmir and at the time Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh said they no longer wanted to have any kind of relationship with him.
Afridi needs to speak the truth
“No matter what happens, the truth should always be told. I believe humanity is above anything else. So I am not ashamed to involve India in expressing my views,” Afridi was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan. .
Afridi also mentioned the amulet batsman Babar Azam and soon he will start winning matches for Pakistan alone. Considering the player’s impeccable toy style and incredible consistency in format, Azam usually stands against India captain Virat Kohli.
“Babar Azam is the backbone of the Pakistan team and I don’t think he feels the pressure to constantly compare himself to Virat Kohli,” he said. “I am hopeful Babur will soon start winning matches for Pakistan.”
Azam himself had earlier said that he would be compared to his own batting great instead of Kohli.
“I don’t want to be compared to Virat Kohli. It would be better if people compared me to a Pakistani legend like Javed Miandad, Mohammad Yusuf or Younis Khan,” Azam told reporters during a video conference last month.
