Shahid Afridi revisits his rivalry with Gautam Gambhir

One of the greatest cricketing rivalries included the tussle between Pakistan’s all-rounder Shahid Afridi and India’s opening batsman Gautam Gambhir. The two players were found having a go at each other which continued to happen even after the conclusion of their International cricket.

Speaking about the brawl, it is hard to ignore their clash in the ODI series in 2007 where the two cricketers were found exchanging abusive remarks. 

The 39-year old recently released his biography called ‘Game Changer’ where he devoted a part to his rivalry with Gambhir. 

In his book, the former captain was found vilifying the attitude of the Indian player by considering him a man of little worth. In addition to that, he went to call Gautam a saryal (always burnt up person).

Afridi believes that Gautam behaves like he’s a cross between Don Bradman and James Bond and added that his negativity annoys the Multan Sultans player. 

Advising the 37-year old about adopting positivity, the darling of Pakistan cricket shared that the Delhi born cricketer needs to fix his attitude issues as they only bring embarrassment.
