Afridi advocates cricket as a solution for Indo-Pak tensions

Shahid Afridi’s recently released autobiography titled ‘Game Changer’ has been making rounds in media for all the wrong reasons, with different controversies being associated with Afridi’s candid opinions. 

The exuberant cricketer also spoke to an Indian news channel ahead of a promotional event, discussing his views on different topics.

Asked about his perspective of an India-Pakistan game likened to a war, the former Pakistan skipper disagreed with this notion and instead advocated normalized cricketing relations between the two countries as a pathway for diplomatic peace.

Pakistan and India have not met each for a bilateral series for almost 6 years, and only clash in ICC tournaments. Afridi, on the other hand, suggested holding more cricket tours between the two nations.

Afridi recounted how in the past, deep friendships were formed amongst Pakistan and Indian cricketers, with them often going on shopping sprees together in the streets of Lahore back in 2004.
