India's Gautam Gambhir and Pakistan's Shahid Afridi are never on the same note. The two have a bitter memory from the cricketing days, and now even after retirement, Gambhir and Afridi don't go easy on each other.

Recently, Gambhir had slammed Afridi for his comment on the Kashmir issue. It wasn't just a condemnation of Afridi's statement against India, the ex-India cricketer called him a 16-year-old kid.

Former Pakistan bowler Waqar Younis has requested Afridi and Gambhir to be sensible with their comments and not lose their calm on social media.

Waqar feels the thing between Gambhir and Afridi can no longer be called a banter as they have taken it too far.

"The banter between Gautam Gambhir and Shahid Afridi has been going on for a while now. I think they both got to be smart, sensible, and calm down. It has been going on for way too long. My advice to them is to maybe catch up somewhere around the world and talk it out if you cannot really calm it down," Waqar said during an interaction on chat series "Q20" on GloFans.

"In social media, if you carry on that, people are going to love it and people are enjoying it and that I feel that they both should be sensible and smart."

Gambhir was angry over Afridi because he not only talked about Kashmir, the 40-year-old also targetted India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the military forces.
