Fans did not like Pakistani great Waqar Younis’ tweet criticizing the Indian squad in his Twitter post on Shaheen Afridi’s injury. Shaheen had a knee injury during the Sri Lanka Test series, and he is now unable to play in any of the two T20I series against England or the whole Asia Cup competition due to the same problem. Waqar, however, was more worried by Shaheen’s absence from the India game in their Asia Cup opening, and legendary Indian cricketer Irfan Pathan responded to the former fast bowler harshly.

Shaheen’s harm Big relief for the top batters in India’s lineup. Sadly, he won’t be participating in the #AsiaCup2022 Get healthy soon Champ @iShaheenAfridi,” Waqar tweeted shortly after Pakistan suffered the devastating defeat ahead of their Asia Cup campaign, which begins on August 28 in Dubai with a matchup against India.

In the 2021 T20 World Cup match, Shaheen was crucial to Pakistan’s historic 10-wicket victory against India since he got rid of both openers, KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma, in the first three overs before getting rid of then-captain Virat Kohli.

Irfan tweeted on Sunday in reaction to Waqar’s article, stating, “It’s a relief to other teams that Bumrah and Harshal aren’t participating in this Asia Cup!” Harshal and Bumrah were not included in India’s roster since they would not be able to compete in the Asia Cup due to injury. Bumrah had a back problem, but Harshal had a side injury and is now recuperating at the NCA. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan, and Arshdeep Singh make up the Indian fast bowling attack as a result. A name has been added to the standby list: Deepak Chahar.
