Shahid Afridi and Gautam Gambhir are once again at the loggerheads, this time on social media. The scrapping of Article 370 is the reason for the same after which Pakistan has been urging the United Nations to look into the matter while the people of India are celebrating the brave decision. Along with the Pakistan PM Imran Khan even the country’s cricketers have opposed India’s decision and Shahid Afridi is one of those.

Recently, he urged the people of the nation to support Imran Khan who stated that a 30-minute event will take place every week in his county to show solidarity with the Kashmiri people. Afridi voiced his support over the same and was quick to tweet about it as well. The retired all-rounder from Khyber Agency mentioned that he will visit the Mazar-e-Quaid in Karachi on Friday, August 30 and will also visit a Shaheed’s home later.


This tweet was definitely not going to go down well with Gautam Gambhir who trolled Shahid Afridi hilariously. He took a dig at the former Pakistan cricketer stating that he refuses to mature after so many years and also went on to say that he is ordering the online kindergarten for Afridi.

Afridi recalls an old comment calling Gambhir weakest and insecure

Shahid Afridi was bound to respond to Gautam Gambhir and he did so almost within 24 hours. The banter continued as the 39-year-old wittily mentioned that weather in Karachi is changing slowly and it is expected to rain and recalled India’s former Mental Conditioning Coach Paddy Upton’s comment on Gambhir.

He had once said that the left-hander who opened for India was one of the weakest and mentally insecure players. “Gautam Gambhir was one of the weakest and mentally most insecure people I have worked with,” Paddy had said. Afridi pointed out at the same and also indirectly went on to say Gambhir speaks irrelevant things.

Change of weather in Karachi, rain in the air. Also each time Gautam tries to make himself relevant, I am reminded of this…,” Afridi wrote in his tweet.
