The show's anchor stated that Shami is not like retired trolls like Sehwag and Harbhajan, and Shahid Afridi kept his viewpoint.

Pakistan lost the ICC T20 World Cup finale to England on Sunday. The Men in Green could only score 137/8, which England chased down with one over to go. Ben Stokes was England’s hero, scoring an unbeaten 52 in 49 balls to guide his team home.

With the second T20 World Cup title, England are the undisputed white-ball champions as they also currently hold a 50-over World Cup trophy as well.

Following Pakistan’s defeat, former cricketer Shoaib Akhtar had a war of words with India pacer Mohammed Shami. After Akhtar posted a ‘heartbroken’ emoji tweet, Shami wrote, “Sorry brother, it’s called Karma.”

However, Akhtar hit back at the fast bowler.

During a TV Show on Samaa TV, Shami’s tweet was discussed.

The show’s anchor stated that Shami is not like retired trolls Sehwag and Harbhajan, and Shahid Afridi kept his viewpoint.

“We are ambassadors of the game and neighbors as well. Such incidents shouldn’t happen. If we behave like this, what can we expect from a common man,” said Afridi.

“Sports should make us good humans. We want India to play in Pakistan. Even if you are a retired cricketer, you shouldn’t mock someone. Shami should have avoided such a remark.”
