Former Indian batsman Gautam Gambhir has never hesitated to present his views or even bash anyone on social platforms, especially when it comes to Pakistan. This time, it was the Pakistan city Karachi that came under the former cricketer's radar. Gambhir took to Twitter to post a viral video of Karachi, which was shot when the Sri Lankan team was on its way to the National Stadium for the second ODI. The video displayed how the visiting team is led to the ground with very high security. The people who shot the video were constantly mocking the fact cricket was being played in Karachi with such heavy security.

The footage shows more than 30 security cars and an ambulance around the Sri Lankan bus, and a blockade on their way. Two people from the opposite side of the road shot the video, made it go viral and Gambhir got the opportunity to pull Pakistan’s leg again. “Itna Kashmir kiya ke Karachi bhool gaye (They blabbered so much about Kashmir that they forgot Karachi),” read the caption of the video posted by the cricketer-turned-politician. A few hours before posting this video the former southpaw also bashed Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan by saying that the latter is a role model for terrorists and should be excommunicated from the sports community.

The Sri Lanka 2019 Tour of Pakistan is the first instance in ten years where an international ODI match is being played in the nation. It was Sri Lanka who last toured Pakistan for an ODI series in 2009. The visitors were attacked on their way to Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore and the tour was abandoned. After that, all teams refused to tour Pakistan and UAE became their home ground. However, in this series also, many players like Lasith Malinga and Angelo Mathews have withdrawn their names from the series due to security issues.
