What sort of friendship is this: Pakistan spinner Danish Kaneria slams Shahid Afridi for speech in PoK

Danish’s Statement

Pakistani leg spinner named Danish Kaneria has been diligent and come to the support of Indian cricketers.

After Gautam Gambhir, Harbhajan Singh, Yuvraj Singh and Suresh Raina lashed out on Shahid Afridi, Danish came to our support.

Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi was criticized for his abominable speech against India and the PM Narendra Modi during his recent visit to PoK.

Procession

Danish is apparently serving a life ban because he was caught in spot-fixing in England’s country cricket.

Nevertheless, he condemned Afridi and said he should think twice before he speaks.

He went on to say that if he wants to join politics, then he should quit every tie with cricket, for its important to stay away from cricket if the person is wanting to act like a politician.

Danish said that his speeches would create a negative image of Pakistan Cricket not only in India but also around the world.

He said how Afridi took the help of Indian cricketers like Harbhajan Singh and Yuvraj Singh and still said poisonous things about their country and their Prime Minister.

What Now?

Former Indian cricketers had slammed him for his uncanny remarks about India, and being a double-faced person.

Danish Kaneria, however, sounded positive about the return of bilateral cricketing ties between the two countries.

He said that cricket would allow the political wedge between India and Pakistan to decrease.\
