Shahid Afridi has stoked yet another controversy after his infamous tweet on Kashmir.
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?

His Tweet went viral in India and generated response from many Indian Cricket Legends. Even though Shahid Afridi later tried to calm things by posting his picture with Indian Fans but Indians were in no mood to forgive him.
After so much bashing we thought Afridi would have learned his lesson but he again stoked controversy by making a statement against IPL in an interview.
Shahid Afridi said that he won’t play the IPL even if he was invited. He didn’t just stopped here but went on to compare Pakistan Super League (PSL) and IPL and reportedly said that PSL is bigger and better than IPL.
Shahid Afridi "Even if they call me, I won't go to the IPL. My PSL is the biggest and there will be a time that it leaves the IPL behind. I am enjoying the PSL, I don't have any need for the IPL. I'm not interested in it and never was" #Cricket

It is pertinent to mention here that, Shahid Afridi has played in the very first season of IPL in the year 2008 for Deccan Chargers.
After this interview, Shahid Afridi again became a butt of jokes on twitter.
Now they will be jobless for next two months because of IPL ; as next two months are exclusively alloted to IPL.
One more thing virat kohli's contract in IPL $25 million whole budget of psl $20 millions 😂😂

Same guy said that his team gets more love in India than Pakistan. Also, he said that Miandad is after money and Miandad in turn said that Afridi is a match fixer and if it's not true then he should swear on his kids. Why should we take you seriously, Pakis?

If he was never interested in the IPL why did he play in the first edition of the IPL then. 😂😂

No fuck will call a terrorist to play in IPL. And in which century PSL overtake IPL?😂 Please mention that too! Afridi living in fools world.

Afridi in past has called IPL ‘the best’ and the biggest league, and wanted the inclusion of Pakistani players in it.
So what’s your take on this story?
