“Don’t indulge in abusive talk”, Afridi schools Afghani player

Veteran cricketer Shahid Afridi, who recently had a heated exchange with Afghanistan’s bowler advised the young players not to indulge in abusive talk.

The cricketer took to Twitter and wrote that respect for teammates and opponents is the basic spirit of the game. “My advice to the young player was simple, play the game and don’t indulge in abusive talk. I have friends in Afghanistan team and we have very cordial relations. Respect for teammates and opponents is the basic spirit of the game,” Afridi wrote on Twitter. 

Earlier, Afridi got angry with Afghanistan pace bowler Naveen-ul-Haq during the Lanka Premier League (LPL). He seemingly had got irritated with Naveen after the 21-year-old repeatedly argued with Pakistan left-arm seamer Mohammad Amir during the Galle Gladiators’ match against the Kandy Tuskers, which the Tuskers won by 25 runs.
