The on field fight between Pakistani and Afghani players has not only been making most of the headlines but also extreme debate on social media is going on these days.
In a recent tweet, the Afghan player hit back at Afridi’s advice of respecting the opponents with a ‘give respect take respect’ hash-tag. The 21-year-old revealed that Amir did not only attack him but his people as well.
The Afghani player said,
“Always ready to take advice and give respect, Cricket is a gentleman’s game but if someone says you all are under our feet and will stay their then he is not only talking about me but also talking abt my ppl,
My advise to the young player was simple, play the game and don’t indulge in abusive talk. I have friends in Afghanistan team and we have very cordial relations. Respect for teammates and opponents is the basic spirit of the game. https://t.co/LlVzsfHDEQ
