Shahid Afridi says he will not allow daughters to play outdoor games because of social and religious reasons

Shahid Afridi has given his daughters permission to only play indoor games

Former Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi has revealed some shocking and unexpected things in his autobiography named “Game Changer”. One such secret is regarding his four daughters Ansha, Ajwa, Asmaran, and Aqsa. The former all-rounder has written in his autobiography that his daughters are not allowed to play outdoor games as reported by the Express Tribune.

Despite being a cricketer himself Afridi has forbidden his daughters from playing outdoors games including Cricket due to social and religious reasons. He has allowed his daughters any sport indoors but they are not allowed to compete in public sporting activities.”Ajwa and Asmara are the youngest and love to play dress-up. They have my permission to play any sport, as long as they’re indoors. Cricket? No, not for my girls. They have permission to play all the indoor games they want, but my daughters are not going to be competing in public sporting activities”, Afridi has noted.

He has further written that he did not care about what the feminists said. “The feminists can say whatever they want about my decision”, he wrote.

His recently released autobiography is already making headlines for a number of reasons. One such reason being his comments about former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir. Afridi has described Gambhir as having “a lot of attitude and no great records”. Hitting back at Afridi for his comments Gambhir had tweeted that India was still granting medical visas to Pakistanis and that he would personally take Afridi to a psychiatrist.

Afridi had later clarified and said that he had nothing personal against Gambhir and that he had some good friends in the Indian cricket team.
