Especially he has been in the center of discussion many times with his controversial statement about Shahid Afridi, but this time Afridi has made serious allegations against Danis.
Afridi has now given a befitting reply to Danis’s allegation and said that he has always been trying to humiliate me even though I treated him like a brother. I always supported him.
Afridi said, Kaneria has leveled all these allegations against me just to earn cheap fame and money. If I used to treat her badly then why did she not complain to the Pakistan Cricket Board at that time itself. Everyone knows what Danis is like and what he has done.
He said, “Kaneria had done spot-fixing in England and was convicted there. He is giving interviews to our rival country (India) and provoking religious sentiments.
Shoaib had supported Danis

What was Kaneria’s allegation
Danis Kaneria has told in many of his interviews that Shahid Afridi used to misbehave with him in the dressing room. In his allegation, Danis had said that both Afridi and I were players of the same department. That’s why he would keep me on the bench. I didn’t get a chance in the playing XI. Apart from Afridi, Danis did not blame any other player in the team of misbehavior.
Apart from this, he also accused former captain Shahid Afridi that he believes in Hinduism but he was pressured to convert to Islam. During that time senior players like Inzamam-ul-Haq, Shoaib Akhtar, Moin Khan, Rashid Latif and Younis Khan were included in the team in the Pakistani team. However, Danis did not level any allegations against him.
