Even if you’re not a cricket fan, Shahid Afridi vs Gautam Gambhir saga would have caught your attention as deep inside everybody knows it’s actually Pakistan vs India faceoff. The on-field battle between both the star cricketers of their nation has buried long ago, but it isn’t yet over as they both go ahead passing negative remarks or taking a dig at each other now and then.
Up to the latest, former Indian cricketer tried to troll Shahid Afridi after he announced his support for Prime Minister’s Imran Khan’s Kashmir Hour initiative. With a sarcastic note, Gautam Gambhir thought he made a convincing move but as soon as Afridi replied, Twitteratis were on Boom Boom’s side.
Though, it wasn’t the very first time that star cricketers were trying to knock each other down. But this was something bigger and better as Gautam, who is known for his extremist approach tried to lament Afridi for his utmost support for Kashmir cause. It should be noted here that top Pakistani all-rounder not only extended support to PM’s Kashmir Hour initiative but also told about his plans of visiting LOC and martyrs home.
Shahid Afridi vs Gautam Gambhir: Here’s how it started
Let’s respond to PM call for Kashmir Hour as a nation. I will be at Mazar e Quaid at 12 pm on Friday. Join me to express solidarity with our Kashmiri brethren.
On 6 Sep I will visit home of a Shaheed. I will soon be visiting LOC.

It seems like former Indian opener was baffled to see enormous response over Afridi’s initiative to support Kashmir Hour cause. Therefore, to ruin the party, Gambhir took to Twitter with mocking Afridi about his decision again. It backfired as Pakistani legend cricketer got to support more than ever and what made it more conspicuous is ‘Afridi’ as a top trend on Twitter in Pakistan (at the time of writing).
One of Pakistan’s renowned actors, Shaan Shahid lauded Afridi’s decision of supporting Kashmir cause and in return the flamboyant all-rounder Shaan and other celebrities to support the cause with joining him in this initiative.
Bhai pls bring other silent cricketers as well.. ramiz Bhai, Waseem bhai, waqar bhai , inzi Bhai. Even if they don’t want to talk about the political side of it .. they must raise the voice for injustice & humanity. 🇵🇰♥️

You are a small man Gautam (like literally as well), and you fail to escape the gigantic shadow Shahid Afridi casts upon small men like yourself,
Both on the pitch and off the pitch!#SolidarityWithKashmir https://t.co/xXdgRnoaGB
