Gautam Gambhir has strongly hit back at Shahid Afridi on Twitter after the former Pakistan cricketer tweeted over the issue of Kashmir. Gambhir said that Afridi seems to be looking for ways to embarrass himself. 

Gambhir's tweet came after Afridi said in a tweet that he would be present at Quaid’s mausoleum on Friday for the sake of “our Kashmiri brethren”. He asked his fans to join him there. He also said he would soon be visiting the Line of Control.

"Let’s respond to PM call for Kashmir Hour as a nation. I will be at Mazar e Quaid at 12 pm on Friday. Join me to express solidarity with our Kashmiri brethren. On 6 Sep I will visit home of a Shaheed. I will soon be visiting LOC”.

In reply, Gambhir posted a screenshot of Afridi's tweet and a photo. He wrote, “Guys, in this picture Shahid Afridi is asking Shahid Afridi that what should Shahid Afridi do next to embarrass Shahid Afridi so that’s it’s proven beyond all doubts that Shahid Afridi has refused to mature!!! Am ordering online kindergarten tutorials for help.”

The two former cricketers have clashed once on the field and several times off it recently. 

Earlier this month, after Indian government revoked special status of Kashmir, Afridi had tweeted about “unprovoked aggression” by India and “crimes against humanity". Gambhir responded to it saying that the Pakistani all-rounder “was spot on” and should be “lauded” for highlighting it, but had forgotten to mention that all the atrocities were taking place in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.
