Former Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi lambasted ex-India opener Gautam Gambhir for having an attitude problem.
Afridi, who played against Gambhir on numerous occasions, made the comments in his autobiography, Game Changer.
“Some rivalries were personal, some professional. First the curious case of Gambhir. Oh poor Gautam. He and his attitude problem,” Afridi was quoted as saying by The Indian Express. “He who has no personality. He who is barely a character in the great scheme of cricket. He who has no great records just a lot of attitude.
Afridi added that Gambhir acted like he was a cross between Don Bradman and James Bond.
“In Karachi we call guys like him saryal (burnt up). Its simple, I like happy, positive people. Doesn’t matter if they are aggressive or competitive, but you have to be positive and Gambhir wasn’t,” he wrote.
