Netizens trolled Shahid Afridi over his ‘India sought forgiveness from Pakistan after facing defeat’ claim
On Saturday (July 04), former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi once again made heads turn with his big statement on India-Pakistan rivalry. In a recent interaction, Afridi — who just recovered from the deadly COVID-19 virus — reminded one and all of the Men in Green’s dominant run over India in the past.
In this regard, the 40-year-old Afridi during a chat with Sawera Pasha on YouTube shows Cric Cast stated, “We have always enjoyed playing against India. We have thrashed them on a decent number of occasions. We have thrashed them so much that they used to ask for forgiveness from us after the match.”
Following his remark, the Pakistani was once again trolled by Indian fans on social media platform Twitter, who schooled him for his latest remark and advised him to get his act together, especially while speaking on the much-intense Indo-Pak cricketing rivalry.
In the same chat show, Afridi also spoke in length on how he used to cherish encounters versus top teams such as India and Australia. Mentioning some of his fine performances versus the Men in Blue, Afridi rated his 141-run knock in the epic Chennai Test, in 1999, as his personal best versus the neighboring country.
“My most memorable inning was the 141 against India (Chennai Test, 1999), that too in India,” revealed Afridi. “I was not going on that trip, they were not taking me. Wasim bhai and the chief selector that time supported me a lot. It was a very difficult tour and that inning was very important,” he added.
