Pakistan spinner Danish Kaneria, who’s presently serving a lifetime suspension from the game, lashed out at former teammate Shahid Afridi for his latest speech towards India and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The bowler asserted that the all-rounder ought to think before making such assertion and what influence it leaves on Pakistan cricket.
“Shahid Afridi should think before speaking on any matter. If he wants to join politics then he should quit all ties with cricket. It is important to stay away from cricket if you are speaking like a politician. Speeches like these create a negative image of Pakistan cricket not only in India but also around the world,” Kaneria was quoted as saying by India TV.
“He appealed for help from them and after getting the help you end up saying things about their country and PM. What sort of friendship is this?” questioned Kaneria.
