Former Danish Pakistani spinner Kaneria criticized Shahid Afridi for making an offensive statement against Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The former Pakistani captain made several derogatory comments to PM Modi about the Kashmir issue. Afridi faces heat for his speech from a former Indian cricketer and fan on social media.
In an exclusive interview with IndiaTV, Danish Kaneria said Afridi must not use offensive words against the Indian PM.
“Afridi should not use offensive words for the Prime Minister of India. Even Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has never spoken of India in such an insult and he will not do that in the future either. Afridi needs to learn from him and must know there are always limits when you speak. “Kaneria told IndiaTV.
Kaneria further attacked Afridi and said if he wanted to join politics then he would have to leave cricket.
“Afridi has to think before he talks about any problem. If he wants to join politics then he has to leave cricket. You can’t stay in cricket and talk about political affairs. His comments create a negative image about Pakistan Cricket in front of India and the rest of the world, “he said.

Recently, former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh and veteran spinner Harbhajan Singh supported Afridi during his call for donations in Pakistan for the coronavirus pandemic. But when Afridi’s hate speech towards PM Modi went viral, both Yuvraj and Harbhajan responded to the ex-Pakistan captain for his comments.

Kaneria also believes the same thing and says, by spitting poison on their PM, what kind of friendship Afridi pursues with Yuvraj and Harbhajan.
“That’s not fair, you ask for help from them in the first case and then spit poison to their Prime Minister. What kind of friendship are you after?”
Kaneria also felt that the cricket between India and Pakistan must be restored and the governments of the two countries must resolve their problems.
“Cricket must be restored once again between the two countries. Whatever political tensions between India and Pakistan, the governments of the two countries must resolve through dialogue so that cricket can be restored once again.
“The bilateral series between India and Pakistan in the world are more interesting than any ICC tournament. The trial series between India and Pakistan is bigger than that ash. “In such a situation, it must be returned once more for the benefit of cricket,” he concluded.
