A video clip of Shahid Afridi recently went viral on social media in which he could be seen exchanging fiery comments to 21-year-old Afghanistan cricketer Naveen ul Haq.
On Monday night after the end of the Lanka Premier League match between Galle Gladiators and Kandy Tuskers Mohammad Amir and Naveen-ul-Haq threw shade at each other.
Soon after the match ended both the teams gathered for a handshake, Shahid Afridi scowled at Naveen-ul-Haq and said something to him rudely.
Taking to Twitter, Lala revealed what he had said to the Afghanistan player.
“My advice to the young player was simple, play the game and don’t indulge in abusive talk. I have friends in the Afghanistan team and we have very cordial relations. Respect for teammates and opponents is the basic spirit of the game.”
Cricketer Mohammad Amir had also backed Afridi’s response and said,
