LPL 2020: Naveen-ul-Haq slams back at Shahid Afridi
Lahore, 4th December: A few days back Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi gave a sound piece of advice to a young Afghani player Naveen-ul-Haq who misbehaved with Mohammad Amir during a match of the ongoing Lanka Premier League 2020.
It seems that on-field verbal spat between former Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi and Afghanistan’s Naveen-ul-Haq is far from over.
Afridi revealed he told Naveen to play the game and not to indulge in abusive talk.
“My advice to the young player was simple, play the game and don’t indulge in abusive talk. I have friends in Afghanistan team and we have very cordial relations. Respect for teammates and opponents is the basic spirit of the game,” Afridi revealed on Twitter.
Responding to Afridi’s advice, Naveen wrote, “he was always ready to take advice and give respect but if someone says you all are under our feet and will stay there then he is not talking about me but also talking about my people.
