Afridi called Gambhir arrogant in his biography
Gambhir gave a befitting reply on social media
New Delhi. Gautam Gambhir, the former opener of the Indian cricket team, is one of those players of Team India who have the ability to respond to the opponents on the ground in every way. Although Gambhir got involved with many players during his cricket career, but his confrontation with the neighboring country Pakistan was more. Even after saying goodbye to cricket, there is a spat on social media between Gambhir and former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi. Afridi had described Gambhir as arrogant in his autobiography. Afridi had written that there is no big record in the name of Gautam, on which the reply given by the former left-hander batsman left Afridi speechless.
Shahid Afridi’s biography ‘Game Changer’ was published in the year 2019. Shahid Afridi had even termed Gambhir as arrogant. He wrote about Gambhir in his book, ‘Some rivalry was personal and some professional. Although Gautam Gambhir’s case was unique. Too bad Gautam. He had an attitude problem. Those who have no personality, they hardly have character in a great game like cricket. In whose name there is no big record. What they have is a lot of attitude.
