“Yes, a lot of people, a lot of people are here from Kashmir as well. And I want to thank people of Kolkata, they really support us as well.”

His comments came before the start of their ICC World Twenty20 game against New Zealand at Punjab Cricket Association (PAC) Stadium. Pakistan lost the match.

 

The captain faced lot of critisim for his statement. BCCI Secretary Anurag Thakur said:



“To give a statement like that is not politically correct. A player should stay away from all this.”

Just a few days back, he stirred a controversy when he had said that Pakistan team got more love in India than his country.

The statement led to Afridi’s criticism in Pakistan, especially from former cricketers like Javed Miandad and Mohsin Khan. Miandad had said that he should be ashamed for saying such things.

Shaharyar Khan, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairperson, said Afridi will no longer be Pakistan’s T20 captain after the World Twenty20, irrespective of the team’s performance in the remainder of the tournament.
