Afridi stands by his words, pleads misinterpretation


LAHORE: Shahid Khan Afridi in a video message said that his remarks were misinterpreted. He explained that because cricket is worshiped in India, he receives more love from Indian audience, Aaj News reported.
Earlier in a press conference in India, Captain Shahid Khan Afridi said that he receives more love in India than Pakistan, which caused uproar in Pakistani cricket fans community. The criticism ultimately led Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to make the player upload an explanation.
Afridi is already under hot waters for his under-performance in Asia Cup 2016.
