ISLAMABAD: Shahid Afridi slammed former India opener Gautam Gambhir by terming him as someone who has no personality and who has a lot of attitude problem in his recently released autobiography ‘Game Changer’. Afridi’s autobiography has been in the news as the former Pakistan captain revealed his actual age in it.
Referring to his rivalry with Gambhir as personal, Afridi went on to launch a no holds barred attack on the former India opener. “Some rivalries were personal, some professional. First the curious case of Gambhir. Oh, poor Gautam. He & his attitude problem. He has no personality. He who is barely a character in the great scheme of cricket. He who has no great records just a lot of attitude.”
Afridi further went on to add that Gambhir’s attitude cannot be termed as competitive, in fact, he was full of negativity during his playing days.
“Gambhir behaves like he’s a cross between Don Bradman & James Bond. In Karachi, we call guys like him saryal (burnt up). It’s simple, I like happy, positive people. Doesn’t matter if they are aggressive or competitive, but you have to be positive & Gambhir wasn’t,” he further wrote in his autobiography.
