Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi has come up with yet another statement that is bound to make the Indian cricket fans angry. In recent times, the former cricketer has come up with some controversial comments against India. Not very long ago, he had bizarrely claimed that Indian players used to ask for forgiveness after losing against their arch-rivals in cricket.

Unsurprisingly, the comment caused a big controversy as the Indian cricket fans slammed the outspoken Pakistani allrounder. Well, he could face more backlash on social media after his latest comment on India. On Wednesday, Shahid Afridi took to Twitter to have a question-answer session with his followers.

The social media users asked him different questions and he answered most of them. One of the users went on to ask him about his poor record against India in World Cup games. Pakistan have a terrible record against India in World Cups and Shahid Afridi’s record is even worse. Both the teams have faced each other seven times in the 50-over World Cup and four times in the T20 World Cup and India have won all the encounters.

As soon as Shahid Afridi gave the fans an opportunity to ask him questions, one of them asked him:

“Shahid Bhai asking respectfully,what do u think was the reason behind your poor performance against India in WC?,U scored just 56 runs in 5 matches and just picked up 1 wkt in total”

Shahid Afridi, in reply, came up with a bizarre answer. The outspoken controversial allrounder’s answer lacked any sort of humility as he wrote:

“I think Indian team was lucky.”

Shahid Afridi’s record against India in World Cups:

As far as Shahid Afridi’s record against India in the marquee event is concerned, it is absolutely dismal.  In four games against India at the 50-over World Cup, his scores were 6, 9, 19 and 22. He also faced India thrice in the T20 World Cup and scored 0, 8 and 8 as Pakistan lost all the three games.
