New Delhi: India opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan has hit back at former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi for his controversial remarks on Kashmir.

In a video that has gone rival, all-rounder Afridi is seen talking to people in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK). He was seen criticising Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Afridi also asked Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to include a team from Kashmir in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) Twenty20 tournament.

Former India opener Gautam Gambhir has often slammed Afridi for talking about Kashmir. Now, Shikhar has joined his former teammate to put Afridi in his place.

The left-handed Shikhar said, “Kashmir was ours, is ours and will always be ours”. He hit out at Afridi for talking about Kashmir when the world is battling the virus.

“Is waqt jab saari duniya corona se lad rahi hai us waqt bhi tumko kashmir ki padi hai (Currently, the entire world is battling corona and you are concerned about Kashmir). Kashmir humara tha humare hai aur humara hi rahega (Kashmir was ours, is ours and will always be ours). Chaiyeh 22 crore le ao, humara ek, sava lakh ke barabar hai (Even if you get 22 crore, our one is equal to 15 lakh). Baaki ginti apne aap kar lena (Count the rest on your own) @SAfridiOfficial (sic),” Shikhar tweeted.
