Shahid Afridi raised questions on the attitude of Mohammad Amir
There was talk of reprimanding the fast bowler in the TV show
New Delhi. Even before the start of Pakistan Super League (PSL 2023), a statement by fast bowler Mohammad Aamir had created a ruckus. Aamir said that throwing the ball to Babar Azam is like bowling to a tailender. The tension between the two players was clearly visible in the match between Peshawar Zalmi and Karachi Kings. Mohammad Amir looked very angry at Peshawar’s captain Babar Azam’s failure to take his wicket. During this, he also called abusive words to many players. In the match against Islamabad United, the fast bowler also made a wrong gesture to the batter.
Shahid Afridi, the former captain of the Pakistan team, told that he messaged Mohammad Amir and reprimanded him for his attitude. Afridi said in a TV show, I messaged Aamir. Talked to him with respect and also scolded him. I said to Aamir, what do you want? You got so much respect, you put a stain on it and then returned. You have got a new life in a way. what are you trying to do. Shaheen Afridi also expressed his displeasure over the statement of Mohammad Amir in gestures.
Narjis replied to Afridi
After this incident, Mohammad Aamir’s wife Narjis targeted Shahid Afridi through Shaheen Afridi. Taking the support of the fans, Narjis said that questions were raised on Aamir’s way of wicket celebration, but when Shaheen Afridi did it, the fans liked it very much. This is double standard.
Please inform that Shahid Afridi’s son-in-law Shaheen is the captain of Lahore Qalandars in PSL. At the same time, after Najam Sethi became the PCB chairman, Mohammad Amir is preparing to return to international cricket.
