His decision to include Shahid Afridi was not appreciated by a number of Indian cricket fanatics. They responded harshly to Aakash, inquiring why he included a Pakistani.
You obviously didn’t have a look at his T20 International record in 2010s. The decade. Do yourself a favour and check. Thank me later ☺️🤗 https://t.co/6T2hL9Zsp4
