Saeed Ajmal says “Amir made a mistake, he should apologize” in T20 World Cup 2021. Ajmal feels Mohammad Amir should apologize. For the ugly Twitter spat with Harbhajan Singh. Also, following India’s defeat to Pakistan and Amir took to Twitter and quipped.
“Harbhajan Paa ji ne TV to nai toda apna?” (Did Harbhajan break his TV?),” Saeed Ajmal said.
Harbhajan and Shoaib Akhtar also made playful digs. But don’t shoot at each other; instead, post the game. Amir began hurling insults at the Indian cricketer. Harbhajan was not happy and reminded Amir of his previous match-fixing activities. In the controversy, Ajmal said that Amir had no business chipping into the conversation. It is between Akhtar and Harbhajan. Speaking to Cricket Pakistan, the former Pakistan off-spinner advised Amir to apologize to Harbhajan.
“Players should treat each other in a nice manner because sports bring people together. I think Amir made a mistake by jumping in that conversation [between Shoaib Akhtar and Harbhajan Singh] and he should apologize for it. It was a discussion between two great cricketers and Amir made the wrong choice by getting involved in it,” Saeed Ajmal said.
Afterward, India’s defeat to Pakistan in the T20 World Cup clash. And then Harbhajan complimented Pakistan for their brilliant win. And admitting they were a better team. Also, they experienced Mohammed Shami facing a barrage of online abuse. With many questioning his commitment and pointing out his religion. Rape threats were also issued to Indian Virat Kohli’s nine-month-old daughter after he backed Shami.
“Lastly, the player plays the game, religion does not play. It is not right to harass players based on their religion. If such things happen, the future generation might be scared of taking up the game. Players are being called gaddars (traitors). Kohli’s nine-month-old daughter is getting rape threats. It is a sport, where one team has to win and one has to lose. India performed badly in a couple of games. But if you look at the stats of the entire year, India has been perhaps the most successful team,” Saeed Ajmal said.
