With Pakistan cricket team ratifying its place in the World cup quarterfinals with some stellar performances and clinical bowling, and clearing the continuous contentious air surrounding them, Shahid Afridi conjured a new controversy as he allegedly beckoned former Australian player and commentator Mark Nicholas with the word “Nigger” during an interview.
