Shahid Afridi, the leg-spinner with middle-order attacking batting skills from Pakistan, has taken a dig over the racist government of Modi. He says that India vs Pakistan series is difficult to take place until or unless racism stays in India’s government.
Pakistan has always taken friendly steps towards India. Now, Pakistani cricketers are promoting an idea to hold India vs Pakistan bilateral series to reduce the friction among both nations.
Shoaib Akhtar, who was the first to give an idea of the three-match ODI series among both nations, got criticized by many Indian cricketers. However, many Pakistanis, such as Ramiz Raja and Shahid Afridi have backed his idea, not to raise COVID-19 funds, but to promote affection between India and Pakistan.
India vs Pakistan is impossible amid Modi’s government Shahid Afridi
“We want to play against India, but it’s difficult in this situation because of the Modi Government as there is negativity coming from them. Pakistan has always been positive but India also has to take a positive step towards us,” Shahid Afridi said as quoted by PakPassion.
“Relations with India should be better as cricket has always brought Pakistan & India closer. I agree with Shoaib Akhtar, we should have matches but it’ll be a big challenge to organize as we don’t know where they’d be held or if India wants to play,” he added.
