Pakistan’s former flamboyant all-rounder Shahid Khan Afridi didn’t like Indians bashing their ex-cricketers Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh for supporting some good cause.
Very sad to see simple messages of humanity getting misunderstood! We r ambassadors for Love & peace ,
Truly value the support extended by @YUVSTRONG12 & @harbhajan_singh for coming forward & urging people to #DonateKaroNa #HumanitybeyondBorders https://t.co/x5Uo5GUNp5

Yuvraj also expressed disappointment over Indians’ reaction over his support for Shahid Afridi Foundation which is serving humanity in a tough situation.
He took to Twitter to answer critics and explained that his support was just a token of appreciation for all those people who are working hard to help humans.

It must be noted here that Yuvraj and Harbhajan appreciated Afridi for striving for a great cause. Both Indians requested people to come forward in their respective countries to help needy families in a lockdown situation.
These are testing times, it’s time to lookout for each other specially the ones who are lesser fortunate. Lets do our bit, I am supporting @SAfridiOfficial & @SAFoundationN in this noble initiative of covid19. Pls donate on https://t.co/yHtpolQbMx #StayHome @harbhajan_singh pic.twitter.com/HfKPABZ6Wh

But Indians took it for all wrong reasons. They didn’t like them praising any Pakistani and started criticizing their cricketing heroes.
Bhajji!When I was a young girl,I met all of you in Delhi,joined you for the cake cuttin,got your autograph,you joked with me n kept my wallet in your blazer pocket…from that day I kept that sheet as my prized possession!But today you have broken my heart!

They all will sell their motherland for their fraternity with cricketers. First Siddhu then Yuvraj/ Harbhajan. Shameful.
