After the game, Shoaib talked about this on his YouTube channel. Criticizing the neighboring country, he took one hand and said, “As a nation, we have always stood by Afghanistan in its difficult times. What did they do after Asif Ali got out? Who pushed him, even scolded? You play cricket. Show your emotions. Don’t show such arrogance. This is why God is punishing you. And this is why the creator has defeated another Pathan with the six of one Pathan (Naseem Shah). You are ashamed and leave the field crying.’
Shoaib also brought up the issue of Pakistan’s relationship with India while explaining that the Afghanistan team’s behavior was not right. Referring to the Afghans as a good cricket team, Shoaib said, “We mix well with the Indians.” And what are you doing? We consider you brothers. Neighboring countries, we love you, take care. And you are so rude? It is not acceptable.’
Shoaib’s question to Shafiq, “To improve in the game, you spectators and players need to learn some things.”
