Pakistan’s former cricketer and Al-rounder, Shahid Khan Afridi has once again reacted to Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhirs ‘psychatrist remark’ and said that ‘he would arrange visa for the treatment of Mr. Gambhir in Pakistan.’
“I think Gautam Gambhir may have some problems. I am working with hospitals and I can get him very good treatment here,” Afridi said, “The Indian Government doesn’t normally give visas to our people, but I will welcome everyone from India to Pakistan. Our people and our Government have always welcomed Indians and as for Gautam, I will get a visa arranged so that his treatment can be done here,” he added.
Afridi made the comments at the launch of his controversial autobiography ‘Game Changer’ in Karachi on Saturday while terming Mr. Gambhir as someone who has no personality and the one who has a lot of attitude problem.
Afridi had tweeted, “Some rivalries were personal, some professional. First the curious case of Gambhir. Oh poor Gautam. He & his attitude problem. 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.”
The battle of words had started when Afridi also took a jibe at Gambhir by referring him as a cross between Don Bradman and James Bond. “Gambhir behaves like he’s a cross between Don Bradman & James Bond. In Karachi we call guys like him saryal (burnt up). It’s simple, I like happy, positive people. Doesn’t matter if they are aggressive or competitive, but you have to be positive & Gambhir wasn’t,” he further wrote in his autobiography.
