HIGHLIGHTS

  • The war of words between Gautam Gambhir and Shahid Afridi refuses to die
  • Shahid Afridi had questioned Gautam Gambhir’s atittude in his autobiography
  • I’ve attitude towards liars, traitors & opportunists: Gambhir lashed out at Afridi

Not known to pull back punches, BJP MP and retired cricketer Gautam Gambhir hit back at Shahid Afridi, after former Pakistan skipper questioned India cricketer’s frivolous attitude in his autobiography.

Afridi had written that he used to enjoy playing against Gautam Gambhir and Shane Warne the most because of how they reacted to sledging. On Gambhir, he said, “(Gautam Gambhir) and his attitude problem. He, who has no personality. He, who is barely a character in the great scheme of cricket. He, who has no great records, just a lot of attitude. He, who behaves like he’s a cross between Don Bradman and James Bond.”

The quotes were picked up some publications due to the dearth of live action amid the coronavirus lockdown and this resulted in Gambhir responding to Afridi on Twitter and a war of words ensued.

“Someone who doesn’t remember his age how will he remember my records! ok. Shahid Afridi let me remind you one: 2007 T20 WC final, Ind vs Pak Gambhir 75 off 54 balls vs Afridi 0 off 1 ball. Most important: We won the Cup. And yes, I’ve attitude towards liars, traitors & opportunists,” Gambhir tweeted on Saturday.

Afridi and Gambhir had been at loggerheads in one of the ODI games in Guwahati, during Pakistan’s tour of India in 2007. The two hurled waves of abuse at each other after they collided while Gambhir was taking a run off Afridi.

Notably, Gambhir’s fluent 75 had paved the way for a competitive total which India narrowly defended against Pakistan in the final of the inaugural T20 World Cup in 2007. Gambhir had smashed 75 off 54 balls, a knock that was studded with eight fours and a couple of sixes, to help India post 157/5 from their 20 overs.
