The heatwave between Mohammad Amir and the Afghan player two days ago in the Lanka Premier League has taken a new turn. The Afghan player claimed that Mohammad Amir had insulting phrases in response to which.
In the Sri Lankan Premier League (LPL), bitter words were exchanged between Candy Tuskers ‘Afghan bowler Naveenul Haq and Gal Gladiators’ Muhammad Amir in the last moments of the match. At the end of the match, Shahid Afridi expressed his anger at Afghan bowler Naveenul Haq.
When Mohammad Aamir came to bat in the match, he hit a square on the first ball while playing Naveen-ul-Haq Kawancha shot of Candy Tuskers on which Naveen-ul-Haq said something to Mohammad Amir. The players and the umpire settled the matter.
When Naveen-ul-Haq came to bowl the next over, Aamir hit a powerful six off the first ball while the two continued to clash in this last over
The war of words continued after the match, but when Glad Gladiators captain Shahid Afridi came to shake hands with the Candy Tuskers after the match, he showed his eyes to Naveenul Haq and asked about the matter.
Shahid Afridi tweeted on social networking site Twitter, “My advice to young players is not to abuse in the game. I have friends in the Afghan team and we have a very good relationship. Respect for teammates and opponents is the core of the game
To which Mohammad Aamir wrote in response to Shahid Afridi’s tweet that “Lala, your statement is 100% correct”.
On the other hand, Afghan cricketer Naveenul Haq, responding to Shahid Afridi’s tweet, said, “I am always ready to take advice and give respect. Cricket is a game of gentlemen’s men, but if someone says that you are all under our feet.” He is not only talking about me but also against my people. Naveen added in his tweet that “if you give respect, you will get respect”.
It should be noted that this is not the first time that Afghanistan has used harsh words against Pakistani players. Last year, bitter incidents took place in the match of World Cup 2019, while Afghan fans also insulted Pakistani fans on the field.

My advise to the young player was simple, play the game and don't indulge in abusive talk. I have friends in Afghanistan team and we have very cordial relations. Respect for teammates and opponents is the basic spirit of the game. https://t.co/LlVzsfHDEQ
