KEY HIGHLIGHTS

  • Multiple reports claimed that Shaheen Shah Afridi took a dig at India’s Umran Malik.
  • Afridi’s remarks became the talk of the town on social media.
  • However, former Indian opener Akash Chopra has issued a clarification on Sunday.
At a time when multiple reports suggested that Pakistan’s Shaheen Afridi took a sly dig at young pacer Umran Malik, former Indian opener Aakash Chopra has issued a clarification about the alleged remarks made by the speed merchant of the Green Army during a press conference on Sunday. While Afridi is the face of the Babar Azam-led Pakistani side at the international level, pacer Umran has climbed up the ranks to secure his maiden call-up for Team India for the South Africa series.

Recently, Afridi’s alleged remarks about Umran became the talk of the town on the internet. The strike bowler of the Green Army had opined that speed can’t help a bowler if he/she doesn’t have the line-length and swing. But did Afridi’s remark was only about Indian pacer Umran? Former Indian opener Chopra has shared a video about how Afridi responded to a reporter’s query during the same press conference.

“You are in the race to become the number 1 bowler. Do you also have in your mind that you throw the fast ball?,” Afridi was quizzed by the journalist during the media interaction. “Speed can’t help you if you don’t have line and length and swing,” Afridi said in his response. Taking to Twitter on Sunday, Chopra hit back at a social media page over ‘clickbait and misleading’ posts.

“Taken totally out of context. Clickbait and misleading. Hate sells…in all forms. Sports isn’t above that either, it seems. You can do better. You should do better. With huge following comes great responsibility. May be, stick to memes? At least they can be funny sometimes,” Chopra said in his tweet.
