Pakistan’s former cricketer Shahid Afridi has opined that Pakistan was dominant against India in the cricket field. Pakistan and India rivalry in the field is like a war between two nations. The two neighbourhood nations try to prove their dominance in the game through bat and ball. So, the statement from Shahid Afridi is a bold claim.
Shahid Afridi, who last played for his country in 2018, has represented them in 398 ODIs, 99 T20Is and 27 Test matches. He was the lynchpin for the Green Army and contributed excessively with his aggressive batting and leg-spin bowling.
I have always enjoyed India: Shahid Afridi commented about India-Pakistan rivalry in the cricket field
In the recent interaction, Afridi has said that Pakistan’s record against India was outstanding and he enjoyed playing against the rivals. He even said that the Men in Blue would ask for forgiveness after the match ended.
“I have always enjoyed India. We’ve beaten them decently, really decently. I believe we’ve beaten them so much that they used to ask us for forgiveness after the match,” Afridi said on Cric Cast show on YouTube.
“I have enjoyed a lot playing against India and Australia, you have more pressure. They are good teams, big teams. Going and performing in their conditions is the big thing.”
“My most memorable inning was the 141 against India, that too in India. I was not going on that trip; they were not taking me. Wasim bhai and the chief selector that time supported me a lot. It was a very difficult tour and that inning was very important.”
Afridi was one of the greatest all-rounders of Pakistan. He scored 8,604 runs and took 395 wickets in ODIs. In T20Is, he picked up 98 wickets and also scored 1416 runs.
