    of course... the average pakistani cant be different from the average indian, average aussie or average jamaican. the average joe anywhere in the world doesnt give a damn about others' religion. only brainwashed bigots speak like tanvir. you dont have to apologize for some idiot's **************** statement. i know he doesnt represent pakistan.

    i never said indian crowds dont want to see afridi or wont cheer for him. my point is much subtler than that. it is afridi is just another player in the mix. his presence or absence cannot mean much to the tournament. so claiming his popularity to be a defining factor is sheer stupidity. if the IPL owners dont want him they wont take him. no point in screaming about his supposed popularity. it doesnt matter one bit in the given issue.

    Completely disagree with the above. Sohail Tanvir is your average Pakistani. I know it sounds harsh, But that's the reality.

    I gather Afridi is really chomping at the bit to get into the IPL,

    To be fair, you can't blame him for wanting a bite of the financial apple.

    I do believe that this seams unfair on the Pakistani players and there is a rotten core at the heart of this whole affair.

    agree with the above. sohail tanvir actually expressed this particular sentiment in milder words than you'd hear on most streets.

    and its not 'racism.'
