Gautam Gambhir and Shahid Afridi will just not stop grabbing each other's throats. And this time around, the battle is on Twitter.
The former India opener mocked the ex-Pakistan captain and called him a perenially immature person. He said that Afridi's tweet on the current situation in Kashmir and his reference to the United Nations reeks of immaturity.
He said, "Media called me for reaction on @SAfridiOfficial tweet on OUR Kashmir & @UN. What's there to say? Afridi is only looking for @UN which in his retarded dictionary means UNDER NINTEEN his age bracket. Media can relax, @SAfridiOfficial is celebrating a dismissal off a no-ball!!!"

Afridi had addressed his tweet to the United Nations, calling the situation in ''Indian Occupied Kashmir'' "appalling" and "worrisome". Urging the UN and other international bodies to make efforts to stop the bloodshed in the region, he tweeted:
Appalling and worrisome situation ongoing in the Indian Occupied Kashmir.Innocents being shot down by oppressive regime to clamp voice of self determination & independence. Wonder where is the @UN & other int bodies & why aren't they making efforts to stop this bloodshed?— Shahid Afridi (@SAfridiOfficial) April 3, 2018
This isn't the first time Afridi and Gambhir have got into a fight. The last time we saw them have a go at each other was during an India-Pakistan match. Here's a video:
