Shahid Afridi, a former captain of Pakistan, is one cricketer who has a history of saying things that give Indian cricket fans—and sometimes Indian sportsmen—a negative impression. Despite receiving a lot of criticism from cricket fans, he has made contentious remarks in the past regarding India and Indian cricketers, and it appears he is not willing to change his ways.
Afridi was a part of a report that an Indian and a Pakistani television station had worked on before Sunday’s high-stakes Asia Cup match between India and Pakistan.
Harbhajan Singh, a former India spinner, also participated in the conversation.
During the conversation, Afridi brought up his online spat with former India opener Gautam Gambhir. During an ODI in 2007, the pair got into a now-famous brawl, and the footage is still famous among fans of both nations. Since then, the two cricketers have had a tumultuous relationship.

Indian cricket fans have criticized Afridi for his remark and found it offensive. Some supporters were offended by Harbhajan Singh’s laughter following Afridi’s remark on Gambhir. Here are a few responses.
