In their first match of the 2021 ICC World Cup T20, Pakistan defeated India by 10 wickets to record a historic victory. For the first time in the history of the World Cup, Pakistan managed to defeat its archrival India. After this victory, many former Pakistani cricketers praised their team, including former Pakistan fast bowler Waqar Younis. However, Waqar Younis was so engrossed in Pakistan’s victory that he made a controversial statement on a live TV show.

Indeed, during the drinks in the game against India, Mohammad Rizwan was seen offering Namaz, which Waqar called a special moment. Waqar, while reciting ballads in praise of Rizwan, said: “What I liked about Rizwan was that it offered Namaz in the middle of the field, who also stood in the middle of Hindus, it was a very special moment for me.”

Shortly after this statement, Waqar Yunus was targeted by people on social media, after which he had to apologize on Twitter. Waqar tweeted and wrote: “At the time I said something that I don’t think is right. It hurt the feelings of many people. I apologize for this. I did not mean that at all. I have made a mistake. Sport brings people together regardless of their caste. , religion and color “.

Many cricketers have now reacted to this statement by Waqar, including former India Test cricketer Wasim Jaffer. Wasim Jaffer tweeted: “Very disgusting and reprehensible statement by Waqar Yunus.”
