Former India opener Gautam Gambhir has once again given a hard-hitting reply to Shahid Afridi for his comments instigating Pakistani citizens against their neighbours.

A video emerged on social media where Afridi could be seen addressing a crowd in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir, and talking ill about Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi for deploying a huge force in Kashmir.

“I am in your beautiful village, I am very delighted. I was planning to visit you all from a long time. The world is currently infected by such a big disease,” said Afridi before taking a shot at PM Modi, saying: “But the bigger disease is in Modi’s mind.”

“Modi deployed 7 lakh soldiers in Kashmir, same as the total strength of Pakistani forces,” he added while also saying that Kashmiris from India were also supporting the Pakistani Army.

Gambhir has now hit out at the former Pakistan captain, like he has always done whenever Afridi has spoken out against India in the past as well.

“Pakistan has 7 lakh force backed by 20 crore people says 16-year-old man @SAfridiOfficial. Yet begging for Kashmir for 70 years. Jokers like Afridi, Imran & Bajwa can spew venom against India & PM @narendramodi ji to fool Pak ppl but won’t get Kashmir till judgment day! Remember Bangladesh?” Gambhir tweeted.

Just last month the two were engaged in a similar war of words on social media when Afridi had questioned Gambhir’s frivolous attitude in his autobiography.

“(Gautam Gambhir) and his attitude problem. He, who has no personality. He, who is barely a character in the great scheme of cricket. He, who has no great records, just a lot of attitude. He, who behaves like he’s a cross between Don Bradman and James Bond,” Afridi wrote on his book.

Not known to pull back punches, Gambhir responded by saying: “Someone who doesn’t remember his age how will he remember my records! ok. Shahid Afridi let me remind you one: 2007 T20 WC final, Ind vs Pak Gambhir 75 off 54 balls vs Afridi 0 off 1 ball. Most important: We won the Cup. And yes, I’ve attitude towards liars, traitors & opportunists.”

The two former international captains don’t share the best of relationships right from their playing days. Tensions between the two have only grown since Gambhir and Afridi were involved in a heated exchange in one of the ODI games in Guwahati, during Pakistan’s tour of India in 2007.

The two hurled waves of abuse at each other after they collided while Gambhir was taking a run off Afridi. Since then the two have hit out at each other at every given opportunity.
