Afridi apologizes over airport outrage.

KARACHI, March 25, 2012 (Balochistan Times): The star all-rounder Shahid Afridi, who returned from Dhaka on Friday after winning Asia Cup, has apologized from his overwhelming fans over his outrageous attitude at Karachi airport. Afridi told on Saturday that he could not control his temper when the cheering crowd almost crushed his three-year-old daughter who was waiting to welcome him with flowers. Earlier on Friday night, the great Boom Boom Shahid Afridi punched a fan in the face who was only begging him for an autograph. Reportedly, Afridi, who was coming out of the airport after arriving here from Bangladesh, flew off the handle, after cohorts thronged him for autographs. It seemed he was not happy with this fan following and was seen almost running out of the airport with a swarm of his admirers in tow. After repeated gestures of annoyance, which failed to deter the crowd, he swung a mighty right hand at one of the buffs knocking him out then and there, which proved he could be a Bang Bang Boxer Afridi as well. Later talking to private TV channel, Shahid Afridis brother said that Afridi lost temper when the crowd almost trampled his (Afridis) daughter. He said that the reckless fans did not ever care about the three-year old girl, who could have been seriously injured in this stampede like situation.
