Yuvi & Bhaji Criticize Lala To Bail Themselves Out
Apparently, both Sikh cricketers decided to issue statements against Shahid Afridi primarily to bail themselves out of the situation and in order to avoid hostility from the ruling elite of their country.
Bhaji in his statement that was made while talking to Sports Tak said, “Shahid Afridi is no longer my friend because he ridiculed my country and our prime minister…..I will never support him again. I promise everyone that you will never see a video or post for Shahid Afridi in the future.”
Yuvraj on the other hand took to twitter to announce his decision. The former Indian middle-order batsman wrote, “Really disappointed by Shahid Afridi‘s comments on our Hon’b PM Narendra Modi ji. As a responsible Indian who has played for the country, I will never accept such words.”
