KARACHI: Pakistan’s former captain and flamboyant all rounder Shahid Afridi got everyone’s attention on Monday night when he scowled at Naveen-ul-Haq of Afghanistan after end of the Lanka Premier League match between Galle Gladiators and Kandy Tuskers.
Afridi’s Galle was beaten by Kandy in the game but at the end of the match a few hot words were exchanged between Mohammad Amir and Naveen-ul-Haq.
Sources say that Afridi got fumed when he saw Haq getting rude with the Pakistani pacer.
TV footage showed both cricketers exchanging hot words. And, Afridi didn’t like it at all.
Soon after the match concluded both the teams came out for handshake, Shahid Afridi scowled at Naveen-ul-Haq and said something to him angrily.
It is not clear what Afridi had told the young Afghanistan player but it appears to be a shut up call by the former Pakistani captain to the Haq for going against spirit of sportsmanship.
