NEW DELHI: Former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir hit back at former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi for the latter's remark on Kashmir recently.

"Pak has 7 lakh force backed by 20 Cr ppl says 16 yr old man @SAfridiOfficial. Yet begging for Kashmir for 70 yrs. Jokers like Afridi, Imran & Bajwa can spew venom against India & PM @narendramodi Ji to fool Pak ppl but won't get Kashmir till judgment day! Remember Bangladesh?" said Gambhir during a tweet on Sunday.

Afridi had earlier said that it "does not take a belief based on religion to feel the agony of Kashmiris...just a right heart at the proper place."

"Save Kashmir," Afridi said within a tweet on Friday.

Both former cricketers got engaged in a long-running war of words on topics starting from politics to their own respective careers in cricket. It got ignited by Afridi's scathing remarks with reference to Gambhir in his autobiography.

A quote from the book emerged recently within which Afridi said that Gambhir is "barely a character in the great scheme of cricket" and he "behaves like he's a cross between Don Bradman and James Bond." Afridi also said that Gambhir "has no great records."

Most important: We won the Cup. And yes, I've attitude towards liars, traitors & opportunists," Gambhir tweeted back.
