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.

Following the culmination of Ireland innings on Sunday, Afridi was interviewed by Mark Nicholas, where he used the word “Nigger” on him, while finishing it off.Even though Afridi’s intentions might have been jocular and whether he meant it remained dubious, the social media imploded on Sunday with heavy libel of Afridi for abusing Nicholas.

The word Nigger, considered an extremely racist slang, as long as it is uttered by a speaker of non-african american origin(not dark in complexion).Afridi, during his interview, spoke about paying minimal concentration to bad fame, as he put up a clinical bowling performance.

Cricketers have always avoided using such diabolical words, on and off the pitch, although they have been widely popular on American television.

However, Afridi took to social media platform Twitter, elucidating that he had not spoken the slang word and he said everything in good humor.

This is what Shahid Afridi has to say about it:
