Gautam Gambhir slammed Afridi on Kashmir issue

Be it on ground or on social media, the Indian cricketers always come out on the top against Pakistanis. The former vice captain of Indian cricket team, Gautam Gambhir clean bowled former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi on Twitter.

The stylish Indian left-handed batsman slammed the former Pakistan skipper for a tweet in which he had condemned the latest crackdown of Indian Army on terrorists in Kashmir Valley. Afridi in his tweet also urged UN and other international bodies to intervene in Kashmir.

Afridi in his tweet referred to the well trained terrorists of Lashkar and Hizbul as “innocents” and alleged that Indian regime is trying to “clamp the voice of self determination and independence.” Considering the country from where Afridi belongs to, his calling terrorists as “innocents” is nothing surprising.

“Appalling and worrisome situation ongoing in the Indian Occupied Kashmir.Innocents being shot down by oppressive regime to clamp voice of self determination & independence. Wonder where is the @UN & other int bodies & why aren’t they making efforts to stop this bloodshed,” he said.

But little he knew that just like the cricketing days, Indian cricketers would embarrass him on Twitter as-well. And who better to do this noble job than India’s world Cup hero Gautam Gambhir.

Gambhir completely blasted the argument put forward by Afridi withing seconds and said that he is only “celebrating dismissal off a no ball.”

“Media called me for reaction on @SAfridiOfficial tweet on OUR Kashmir & @UN. What’s there to say? Afridi is only looking for @UN which in his retarded dictionary means “UNDER NINTEEN” his age bracket. Media can relax, @SAfridiOfficial is celebrating a dismissal off a no- ball,” Gambhir said.

On Sunday, 12 terrorists were killed in the Valley in one of the biggest security operations in recent history. In the operations, which were conducted over the weekend in three separate locations in the Valley, 12 terrorists were killed, one was captured alive and four civilians lost their lives in the ensuing stone-pelting. Three jawans were also martyred in the gun battle with the terrorists.

Cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan, too, tweeted against the crackdown on terror groups . “The people of Pakistan stand with the Kashmiris democratic struggle for self-determination,” Khan said in a tweet.

It would be better if Pakistani cricketers focus more on cricket than international politics. Because Pakistan is already falling behind newly emerging countries like Afghanistan and Ireland in the field of cricket.
