Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi is in news again from last few days for all the wrong reasons. He recently made a controversial tweet against India and Indian Army on the operations conducted in Kashmir in which 12 Pakistani terrorists were killed.
He raised questions on this operation and blamed India for killing innocents.
He wrote: “Appalling and worrisome situation ongoing in the Indian Occupied Kashmir. Innocents being shot down by oppressive regime to clamp voice of self-determination & independence. Wonder where is the @UN & other int bodies & why aren’t they making efforts to stop this bloodshed?” Afridi tweeted a few days ago.

He got angry response on this tweet from the cricketers including Sachin Tendulkar, Suresh Raina, Gautam Gambir, Shikhar Dhawan and Kapil Dev.
Once again he has made a comment for which people are trolling him very badly. Its not about Kashmir this time but about Indian Premier League (IPL). Afridi’s statements were posted on Twitter by Saj Sadiq, the editor of pakistanpassion.net, on Thursday night.
Shahid Afridi claims that he will never play in IPL and was not even interested to be a part of it ever. He also added that Pakistan Super League (PSL) would surpass IPL one day.
This is what he said:
“Even if they call me, I won’t go to the IPL. My PSL is the biggest and there will be a time that it leaves the IPL behind. I am enjoying the PSL, I don’t have any need for the IPL. I’m not interested in it and never was,” Afridi was quoted as saying.

We all know that Shahid Afridi was a part of IPL team Deccan Chargers in IPL 2008; Indians felt angry after his statement. They trolled Shahid Afridi in a hilarious way like never before. Here are some of the tweets:
Now they will be jobless for next two months because of IPL ; as next two months are exclusively alloted to IPL.

Duckridi avg of 23 in ODI avg of less then 18 in t20 and still Pakistani people consider you legend. Even our Ranji cricket or Under 19 players are far superior then the Pakistani cricket team. Playing in IPL is a dream of every cricketer.
