Former Pakistan team captain Shahid Afridi has given a highly controversial statement on India. Afridi told a news conference in Pakistan that when his team was touring India in 2005, the team bus was stoned after winning the Bangalore test. No bilateral series have been played between India and Pakistan for the last 10 years, the main reason behind it is the mutual relations between the two countries.
When the Pakistani team came to tour India in the year 2005, they played a series of 3 Tests and 6 ODIs. In this the Test series ended 1-1 where it was level. At the same time, Pakistan had won the ODI series 4-2. The last match of this Test series was played at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. In this, Pakistan won by 168 runs and managed to end the series in a draw.
Shahid Afridi said about this tour that there was a lot of pressure for us there. No one used to applaud us when we did four and six. If you remember Razzak, when we won the test match in Bengaluru, our team bus got stoned.

So far, it has not been confirmed that Pakistan will come to India to play in the World Cup. Regarding this, Shahid Afridi further said that you are saying that Pakistan should not go to India for the World Cup and should boycott this World Cup. But I don’t agree with this at all. I think we should go there and come back victorious.
