A petition filed against Afridi’s autobiography

Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi’s autobiography the ‘Game Changer’ has been piling controversies since the day it got published and now a petition has been filed in the Sindh High Court (SHC) to ban his book.

As per media sources, Advocate Abdul Jaleel Khan has filed a petition in SHC for a ban on Afridi’s autobiography ‘Game Changer’. The petitioner argued that Afridi has resorted to using inappropriate words against senior players in the book.

“Shahid Afridi, in his book, used the term like ‘small man’ for legendary batsman Javed Miandad and ‘saryal (burnt up)’ for former Indian opener Gautum Gambhir which are defaming words. He has offended his fans as well as hurt reputation of the game,” the petition stated.

The petitioner also pointed out the discrepancy in the former all-rounder’s age and demanded ‘Boom Boom Afridi’ that he should prove his age in the court as according to his claim in the book, he was 20 or 21 when he scored his first century.
