LAHORE: Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi is in a spotlight of an “unnecessary” controversy ahead of the World T20 over his statement that “I and my team get more love in India than Pakistan.”
The lawyers’ panel said the captain must explain why he gave such a statement. The JAP claimed that Afridi’s remarks hurt the sentiments of the nation.
In case he does file a reply, a legal proceeding could be launched against him, said the JAP notice.
Many people termed his statement a courtesy remarks that should not be made controversial while others considered them to be ‘insult of the country.’
Some former cricketers said nation should back the team as it was in India to play the mega event and refrain from making a mountain out of a molehill.
