Won't play in IPL even if they invite me: Afridi

Won't play in IPL even if they invite me: Afridi

The cricketer has launched a stern defence after being ridiculed for his inflammatory statement on Kashmir. "If I had not been a cricketer, I would have joined the army", he said. Afridi, after seeing the sort of reactions his tweet got, said that he isn't anxious about some responses as he believes he had spoken the truth. "I believe I spoke the truth and I have the right to speak the truth", Said Afridi.

"I am a soldier of my country. I'm not interested in it and never was", Afridi was quoted as saying in Saj Sadiq's Tweet. He said, "Shahid Afridi "Even if they call me, I won't go to the IPL". I am enjoying the PSL, I don't have any need for the IPL. He said, "Appalling and worrisome situation ongoing in the Indian Occupied Kashmir". Wonder where are the United Nations and other global bodies. Afridi tweeted a few days back. "But having said that, it's a very personal choice for someone to make comment about certain issues", Kohli said. "The IPL is clearly the best organised foreign league and it was a totally different experience playing in it", as quoted by Indian Express. While the Indian fans are bashing Afridi for his baseless remark, the former cricketer has found some support from his former teammate and current Pakistani cricketer Ahmed Shehzad.

This netizen wrote, "Kaha se aate hai aise log He's telling that he won't play IPL, But who's calling him for IPL?! We should not be giving importance to certain people", Kapil said.

Current trade price levels places FIS's stock about -8.35% away from the 52-week high and closed 20.43% away from the 52-week low. Being prepared for any scenario will most likely be greatly beneficial to individual investors over the next few months.

Afridi, fondly known as Lala among his fans and teammates, recently drew a lot of flak from past and present cricketers from India for his comments on Kashmir. "Kashmir is an integral part of India and will remain so always". As neighbors we have rights toward each other and also responsibility to spread peace and love.

We, of course, are not sure whether Afridi has taken the backlash too personally following his tweet but the all-rounder is not keen to play IPL even if BCCI approaches him.

"Bulayga kon yaar India me thode din pehle taarif kar raha tha India ki Ab tweet ka response aaya toh bum jal gai h (sic)", read the post.
