#5 Gambhir Takes A Dig At Security Arrangements In Pakistan

Recently, Gambhir criticized the security arrangements made for the Sri Lankan team on tour in Karachi for the limited-overs series against the Men in Green by uploading a video. Sharing the video, which can be expected to have been recorded by a Pakistani citizen, Gambhir tweeted: “Itna Kashmir kiya ke Karachi bhool gaye.” In the one-minute 26 seconds long video, two Karachi men, sitting in a car, seem to be mocking the level of security that has been deployed for the ongoing three-ODI series against Sri Lanka.
