Shahid Afridi has recently been a recipient of criticisms from every nook and corner of India following his harsh comments on the Indian-occupied region of Kashmir. He blamed the United Nations (UN) and other responsible authorities for not taking any actions against the ‘bloodshed’. Subsequently, he was bashed by the current and former Indian cricketers as well as the general audience.
Previously, Gautam Gambhir, Sachin Tendulkar, Suresh Raina, Mohammed Kaif and Rajiv Shukla, an official of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BBCI) have shamed the former Pakistani cricketer for his words. Recently, Shikhar Dhawan, the left-handed batsman, has recently opined on the issue. He took to Twitter and severely slammed Afridi. Here is what he wrote
“Pehle khudke desh ki haalat sudharo. Apni soch apne paas rakho. Apne desh ka joh hum kar rahe hai woh acha hi hai aur aage jo karna hai woh humein ache se pata hai. Zyaada dimaag mat lagao @SAfridiOfficial”
Here is the translation of the same
“First of all, improve the condition of your own country and keep your thoughts to yourself. Whatever we are doing is good for our nation and we are well aware of whatever we are going to do. Therefore, don’t use your brains in our matters”
The tweet from Dhawan
Pehle khudke desh ki haalat sudharo. Apni soch apne paas rakho. Apne desh ka joh hum kar rahe hai woh acha hi hai aur aage jo karna hai woh humein ache se pata hai. Zyaada dimaag mat lagao @SAfridiOfficial

Recently, Afridi has ruled out his chances of playing the Indian Premier League (IPL) and hailed the Pakistan Super League (PSL) as the best in the world. Meanwhile, he also affirmed that we won’t be playing in the IPL even if he is invited to play. He played for the Deccan Chargers back in 2008.
However, following the Mumbai terror attack by the Laskar-e-Taiba, the Pakistani players have been banned from the IPL. With the relationship worsening between the two nations, chances of Pakistani players gracing their presence in the Indian domestic league looks bleak.
