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:
- Afridi wanted to see if the entire ball would fit in his mouth.
- He thought it smelt funny and wanted to see if it tasted funny too.
- The bitch slapping from the Aussies had a psychological effect on Afridi and he momentarily regressed into a 3 year old.
- Afridi was just sharpening his teeth!
- He thought it would be easier to just lick the ball to shine it!
So as you can see it was all very innocent 😉
