Srinagar: Former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi has reacted to Mohammad Amir playing under Misbah ul Haq in the ongoing Legends League Cricket.
When a picture of the former teammates went viral on social media, Amir faced criticism from some quarters.
Amir, who had previously retired from international cricket as a protest against Misbah’s leadership, joined the Asia Lions team and played under Misbah’s captaincy during the tournament.
Afridi was asked about sorting out the issues between Misbah and Amir during a local TV show.
“I think sometimes players give statements without realising they can come across each other at some point,” he highlighted.
“They should avoid giving such statements,” said Afridi in reference to Amir’s statement in which he blamed Misbah for doing injustice with him in the national team.
“I would like to give credit to Misbah here. I am not praising him because he is sitting here with me in the show. He has the quality of forgiving, which you rarely find in our society,” he added.
Amir is playing in the LLC alongside Afridi, Sohail Tanvir, Abdul Razzaq, Mohammad Hafeez, and Shoaib Akhtar, representing the Lions team.
