Srinagar: Pakistan underfire former pacer Mohammad Amir’s wife has questioned the double standards related to criticism of her husband during ongoing PSL.
Amir’s wife Narjis Amir has compared the aggression and actions of Amir and Shaheen Afridi by posting pic on Twitter.
Amir has recently been criticized for his over the top celebrations and general on-field behavior by former cricketers and fans on the internet.
Last week, Shahid Afridi had revealed that he had personally scolded Amir for his on-field behavior in the first two matches for Karachi Kings in Pakistan Super League.
“Whenever a player doesn’t perform, or even if he does, I drop him a message for call him. Likewise, I messaged Amir yesterday. I talked to him respectfully, but I also scolded him. I told Amir, ‘what do you want?’ You have gained so much respect, you faced a blot on your reputation and from there, you made a return. You got a new life, in a way. What are you even trying to do?” Afridi said.
However, Narjis seems to believe that people are showing double standards as they are judging her husband’s celebrations and not criticizing Shaheen for showing similar sort of aggression.
Amir’s wife retweeted a picture, which shows both Amir and Shaheen celebrating a wicket, and wrote, ‘’This”.
Meanwhile Amir seems to have paid no heed to Shahid Afridi’s advice as he made an obscene gesture during his team’s match against Lahore Qalandars on Sunday in Karachi.
