Hyderabad: Tensions continue to flare even after five days of the high-octane India-Pakistan clash that was held last Sunday. Joining the online banter were India’s former cricketer Harbhajan Singh and Pakistan’s pacer Mohammad Amir.

The duo was involved in an online banter after India’s comprehensive 10-wicket loss to Pakistan, their first ever in a World Cup match. However, it was Amir who started when he tweeted asking Harbhajan whether he broke the television set after India’s loss. The banter took an ugly turn and the Indian spinner called the Pakistan bowler a ‘disgrace who sold his country for money’ and brought up the no-ball Amir bowled in the London Test that eventually banned him for several years, due the match-fixing.

The 41-year-old Indian spinner uploaded a video on twitter saying that Amir has no ‘aukat’ and he doesn’t want to speak about him as he doesn’t deserve any attention. “The banter between me and Shoaib (Akthar) has been there for many years and it is normal for us owing to our respective media shows. But in between Amir entered. I don’t want to get into his mess. He is not on that level that I speak about him. He is a disgrace for world cricket and he is a black mark. No one will forget what he did in London. He sold the game and his country for money,” he said on his YouTube channel.

“I should not have reacted to your tweet. Who are you to interfere in my matters? Mind your own business.” He also took a dig at the journalists from Pakistan who supported him online in the matter. “You journalists supporting him show the level of commitment.”

He also requested all the fans to not get involved in banter but enjoy the game of cricket. The veteran cricketer hoped that India will come out victorious in the match against New Zealand when both clash on October 30 on Sunday.

Earlier, former Pakistan great Waqar Younis, whose remarks of ‘Rizwan’s namaz in front of Hindus’ that attracted huge criticism, came out and apologised for his comments saying that he made those remarks in the heat of the moment.
