Legendary Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi has revealed that he is loved by the people of India and gets many messages from there.
Afridi noted that his “overall experience of India has been excellent” and that he has “always appreciated the love and respect that I have gotten from the people of India”.
“If their love is true, no one can take it away, no matter whose government it is,” he told Arab News. “Love is love. No doubt, the way I have enjoyed cricket in India; I have always appreciated the love and respect that I have gotten from the people of India.
“And now when I speak on social media, I get many messages from India and I reply to many people. I believe that my overall experience of India has been excellent.”
While he may be loved by the people of India, Afridi has been a vocal critic of current India Prime Minister Narendra Modi and has been heavily criticised by India cricketers in the past.
In fact, Afridi recently said that as long as Modi remains in power, bilateral series between India and Pakistan will never happen.
