Default Shahid Afridi attacks fan at airport

Shahid Afridi attacks fan at airport

Karachi, Mar 24 (bdnews24.com/Reuters) - Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi attacked and slapped a fan at Karachi airport after he returned home from Dhaka where Pakistan won the Asia Cup final against Bangaldesh on Thursday.

Pakistan television channels showed Afridi, wearing a pink T-shirt, first push a youth to the ground and then slap him before his brother intervened and pulled him away in a melee on Friday night.

The incident took place shortly after Afridi had spoken to the media and praised Bangladesh for their outstanding performance in the Asia Cup final.

The footage showed Afridi heading for a waiting car when he turned around and attacked the youth and then pointed his finger at another man before his brother stepped in.

Afridi told reporters he had lost his temper because his young daughter Ajwa had been pushed to the ground.

"I know what I did was wrong, I should have controlled my temper," he said. "But when I saw my little daughter pushed to the ground I couldn't take it and lost my cool."

Afridi, 32, has been banned and fined twice by the International Cricket Council during a controversial career.

I am not sure I blame him. If my daughter was pushed to the ground, I might have reacted in the same manner or worse. I won't equate this with the Ash and Jalal incident.

No Nonsense approach from Afridi there . Though I still think he shouldnt have reacted that way.

Not acceptable. I understand why he was upset, but it could have been a mistake from the fan.

Nothing gives you the right to strike another person unless its for self defense.

^^ well it was for self defense...come on the fan has pushed his daughter.....he just reacted as a father...just because he is a celebrity we can not avoid the fact that he is a father too...I'm pretty sure any father would have done the same....

He did what a father would do. I would have done the same . It takes a father to understand what was going through Afridi's mind.

Can't blame him TBH. He also admitted that he shouldn't have lost his temper, so it's all good. Perhaps keeping his daughter/family away when a crowded mob was expected would have been a good idea.

I'm disappointed he didn't use his weapon of choice, Shahid "Jaws" Afridi could have caused more damage by biting the fan rather than punching him. Where was his daughter btw? It was funny how he stuck out his tongue when about to slap some random fan, a bit like brad hogg
