Former India cricketer-turned-politician Gautam Gambhir hilariously trolled Pakistan over a video of the security arrangements in place in Karachi for the touring Sri Lanka cricket team.
In a video going which is doing the rounds on social media, shows plenty of security vehicles which can be seen accompanying the Sri Lanka cricket team buses on their way to the National Stadium in Karachi.
Convoy vehicles are surrounding several team buses including an ambulance also follows the array of vehicles in a curfew-like situation.
A man can be heard giving a hilarious commentary to the scene in Karachi.
“Itna Kashmir kiya ke Karachi bhool gaye,” Gautam Gambhir wrote on Twitter while sharing the video on his account.
Gambhir’s troll comes just a day after he lashed out at Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan for his UNGA speech and termed it as ‘role model for terrorists’.
“Sportspeople are supposed to be role models. Of good behaviour. Of Team spirit. Of ethics. Of the strength of character. Recently in the UN, we also saw a former sportsperson speak up. As a role model for terrorists. @ImranKhanPTI should be excommunicated from sports community,” Gambhir had tweeted.
Pakistan have not been able to host international matches ever since the dangerous 2009 bus attack on a touring Sri Lankan team bus. Gunmen appeared the spot and opened fire at the team bus in Lahore, leaving many cricketers injured.
However, Sri Lanka gave a green signal to play a full-fledged limited-over series after several assurances from the Pakistan Cricket Board. Sri Lanka will head to Lahore for a three-match T20I series starting from tomorrow.
As many as 10 top cricketers including the likes of Lasith Malinga and Angelo Mathews, withdrew from the tour immediately citing security scars. Their families reportedly were not comfortable with the players touring Pakistan for the limited-over series assignment.
