Why Shahid Afridi bit the cricket ball

Shahid Afridi was caught on camera biting a cricket ball during the recent Pakistan vs. Australia match. Unfortunately people have misunderstood his motives. Here are some plausible reasons for his biting the ball:

Now that’s a mouthful

  1. Afridi wanted to see if the entire ball would fit in his mouth.
  2. He thought it smelt funny and wanted to see if it tasted funny too.
  3. The bitch slapping from the Aussies had a psychological effect on Afridi and he momentarily regressed into a 3 year old.
  4. Afridi was just sharpening his teeth!
  5. He thought it would be easier to just lick the ball to shine it!

So as you can see it was all very innocent 😉

    All these claims are wrong.Actually he is favoring the Pakistan team by giving the ball such rough shape so that It shall start reverse swinging…
