LAHORE: Shahid Afrid T20 captain who had facing tough time from former crickets and section of media over his team and personal performance, after reaching India, while holding a press conference Afridi had said, We received love and appreciation from India even more than Pakistan. It doesn’t received well by many in press specially Javed Miadad.
On Monday after winning the warm-up match against Sri Lanka, Afridi clarified about his comments, he said,” I am not only Pakistan cricket team captain, but I respent people of Pakistan in India, We you could my statement positively, it doesn’t implied that for me there are no one important more than my country and my people. My identity is Pakistan. After coming in India, journalist asked me question, I knew that what ever I will say, it will be heard around the world so that is why I tried to give the message to the world that we really love playing cricket in India. Cricket is game which connects people. Pakistan and India’s relation have been improved in the past through cricket. I have gave positive”. message from my country. It depends on person, how he take my message positively or negatively
Clearification from Shahid Afridi about his earlier remarks regarding ‘ love in India’ its really sad to see how small minded some people are and to what extent they can go to disrespect our national hero.
