Like Yuvraj, Harbhajan Singh had also spoken out against Afridi earlier in the day for his comments on India and PM Narendra Modi.
''I thought he was our friend but this not how a friend behaves. Ye badtameezi hai (It's rude). He should have stayed within his limits but unfortunately keeps on talking rubbish about our country and our PM, '' the veteran spinner told Sports Tak.
''What I did for him was in good faith and people suffering due to the coronavirus. But from now on no further relations with him. No more message or helping him. He has to learn how to respect other people,'' he added.(UNI)
