Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan slammed Shahid Afridi hard over his comments against India in the Kashmir issue, needled him saying to ‘fix own country first’ before pointing to India.
“Pehle khudke desh ki haalat sudharo. Apni soch apne paas rakho (First, improve your country and keep your thoughts with you),” Shikhar Dhawan said.
The left-handed batsman further said that India knows what it needs to do improve the situations in our country. “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 (What we are doing with our country is good for us and we know what to do in the future. Do not use too much brains),” he said.
Earlier India’s current skipper said that he would never support someone speaking against the country, “As an Indian, you want to express what is best for your nation and my interests are always for the benefit of our nation. If anything opposes it, I would never support it for sure. But having said that, it’s a very personal choice for someone to comment about certain issues. Unless I have total knowledge of the issues and the intricacies of it I don’t engage in it but definitely, your priority stays with your nation,” he said.
