“The banter between Gautam Gambhir and Shahid Afridi has been going on for a while now. I think they both got to be smart, sensible, and calm down. It has been going on for way too long. My advice to them is to maybe catch up somewhere around the world and talk it out if you cannot really calm it down.

“In social media, if you carry on that, people are going to love it and people are enjoying it and that I feel that they both should be sensible and smart,” Waqar said during an interaction on chat series “Q20” on GloFans.
Both Afridi and Gambhir, who have done good deeds for the citizens of their respective countries during the coronavirus pandemic, are hugely popular and respected.
Afridi, who also has a fanbase in India had hurt the sentiments of not only Gambhir but Harbhajan Singh and Yuvraj Singh as well.
