Watch: Shikhar Dhawan Says Pakistanis – Jinke Ghar Kanch Ka Hoh, Woh Dusro K Ghar Pathar Nahi Phekte
Indian opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan is always ready to destroy the opposition bowlers. He has the same attitude if any outsider makes unnecessary comments on his nation.
Back in April 2018, then internationally-active Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi made some comments on Kashmir.
On his official Twitter account, Afridi wrote, “Appalling and worrisome situation ongoing in the Indian Occupied Kashmir.Innocents being shot down by oppressive regime to clamp voice of self determination & independence. Wonder where is the @UN & other int bodies & why aren’t they making efforts to stop this bloodshed?”

Soon Afridi faced backlashes from the Indians for his comments. Shikhar Dhawan was also in no mood to spare then senior Pakistan all-rounder. On his Twitter account, Dhawan advised Afridi to mind his own business and first to change the situation of his own country. He further added that India was doing good and they knew better what to do in future.
Dhawan wrote, “Pehle khudke desh ki haalat sudharo. Apni soch apne paas rakho. Apne desh ka joh hum kar rahe hai woh acha hi hai aur aage jo karna hai woh humein ache se pata hai. Zyaada dimaag mat lagao @SAfridiOfficial”

First fix your own country and then speak about others: Shikhar Dhawan
Recently, Shikhar Dhawan was present in ‘Aap Ki Adalat’, the popular show on India TV. The anchor of that show, Rajat Sharma once again reminded Dhawan that incident. Dhawan once again brought the same attitude in that show.
He said, “If someone says something about our country, of course, we will say stand up. We don’t need outsiders to advice us. First fix your own country and then speak about others. There is a saying ‘Jinke ghar kanch ka hoh, woh dusro k ghar pathar nahi phekte [People who have glass houses, don’t throw stones at others house]’.”
Shikhar Dhawan made his international cricket debut in October 2010. The left-handed batsman has already played 34 Tests, 133 ODIs and 55 T20Is where he has scored 2,315 Test runs (average 40.61), 5,518 ODI runs (average 44.50) and 1,413 T20I runs (average 27.70). Though he is currently struggling to return in Test cricket, the 33-year-old Dhawan is still a major contributor in limited-overs cricket.
