Former Pakistani Skipper Shahid Afridi has come clean with his age, spoken about the 2010 spot-fixing scandal, expressed his views on Kashmir and taken a swipe on many players from his own and opposition teams in his autobiography ‘Game Changer’. Not surprisingly, the all-rounder has become the talk of the town since then.

Now, Pakistani batsman, Imran Farhat has lashed out on Afridi, The Tribune reports. The out-of-favour batsman has accused Afridi of being a “selfish player”, who has ruined many careers for his own benefit.

In his autobiography, Afridi has criticised former players, including Javed Miandad and Waqar Younis. Afridi has taken a swipe on other international players like Gautam Gambhir, which has led to a war of words between the two of them.

In another one of many tweets, Farhat says, “I have a lot of stories to tell regarding this so-called saint we have had the pleasure of playing with. He sure is talented enough to become a politician.”

Farhat has also called upon other people mentioned in Afridi’s book to “speak up and tell the truth”. Amidst the controversy, a petition has been filed in Sindh High Court to ban his book.
