Afridi , From Semis Loser to a Bad Loser…!

Excerpts from a report by  | Islamabad, April 4, 2011 | Updated 10:02 IST

Speaking during a talk show on a Pakistani news channel, Afridi was asked about the relations between India and Pakistan when he responded that the Indians would “never have hearts like Muslims and Pakistanis”. He even termed the talks between the two countries futile.
 
“They (Indians) will never have hearts like Muslims and Pakistanis. It is a very difficult thing for us to live with them (Indians) or to have long-term relationship with them. Nothing will come out of talks. See how many times in the past 60 years we have had friendship and then how many times things have gone bad,” Afridi said on Sunday.

“Our media, which is criticised by people, is hundred times better than theirs,” he said.
India beat Pakistan in the semi-final, which was watched by the Prime Ministers of the two countries, who used cricket diplomacy to boost the peace process between the two sides.

Afridi also criticised Interior Minister Rehman Malik for warning the Pakistani team not to get involved in match-fixing and Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir, who vowed to dedicate victory in the World Cup final to victims of the 2008 Mumbai attacks.
