Pakistan’s former all-rounder, Shahid Afridi, has made a habit of speaking out against anything related to India. The versatile veteran player has made gruesome comments and has made several controversial statements against India. On Wednesday, Shahid Afridi once again did it when he conducted a #AskAfridi session with his fans on Twitter.
Shahid Afridi said ‘India was lucky’ to justify his appearance against India in a WC match
During the session, Shahid Afridi was asked various questions ranging from his personal life to professional. And the 40-year-old man makes sure that he answers all questions honestly. One fan asked Shahid Afridi about his poor record against India in a World Cup match. In response, Shahid Afridi came up with a rather surprising answer. Instead of showing humility, Shahid Afridi went on to say that India was just lucky.
Shahid Bhai asks respectfully, what do you think is the reason behind your poor performance against India in the WC? U only scored 56 runs in 5 matches and only took 1 week in total. #AskAfridi

I think the Indian team is lucky ?

Shahid Afridi doesn’t match Indian fans. As soon as Afridi posted the tweet, fans began criticizing the all-round veterans and dismissed them mercilessly. Let’s look at some reactions.
As if you are going to score one hundred fold alone .. ????

Pakistan has not been able to defeat India in the ICC Cricket World Cup or T20 World Cup. In the ICC Cricket World Cup, India and Pakistan have locked seven times and India have won on all seven occasions. Shahid Afridi played in those four matches but failed miserably.
In the four matches, the scores read 6, 9, 19 and 22. Shahid Afridi also faced India three times in the T20 World Cup where he could only score 0, 8 and 8 when Pakistan lost all three matches. The former all-round fared either against India in a bilateral series or in other competitions but could not deliver goods during World Cup matches.
India used to apologize after the match: Shahid Afridi
Recently, for CricCast appearing on YouTube, Shahid Afridi made several statements about Indo-Pak competition when it came to cricket. Shahid Afridi said in Hindi that he always enjoyed playing against India and that Pakistan had defeated India several times comprehensively. Shahid Afridi also claimed that Pakistan beat India in cricket so they used to ‘apologize’ after the match.
Afridi’s claim echoes that Pakistan’s Prime Minister and 1992 World Cup winner captain, Imran Khan. Back in February at the World Economic Forum, Imran Khan had controversially boasted of the fact that Pakistan used to ‘hit’ India when he played for or was the captain of the national team in the 70s and 80s.
