That drew a lot of flak. Javed Miandad and the people in Pakistan condemned him for the statement.

On Tuesday, Afridi did a similar thing. At the toss in Mohali, Pakistan skipper was asked about the support for Pakistan.

In his reply, Afridi said, “Yes a lot of people. Lot of people. They are here from Kashmir as well.”

Later, fans had banners saying “with love from Kashmir”.

    The statement doesn't look controversial at all. Both Pak and NZ are third party nations and India is not involved in the match. People in the stands are free to support whoever they like. What's so controversial if some JandK guys cheer the Pak players ? Maybe some cheered the Kiwis also ! Some in the stands may have been from POK also, and they would surely back stan .
