Twitterati trolls Shahid Afridi after Lionel Messi’s retirement from international football

Argentinian star Lionel Messi‘s shocking retirement from international football following his team’s defeat in the Copa America final against Chile took everyone by surprise.

As soon as the news reached cricket fans and followers they took their Twitter accounts to take a dig at Pakistani all-rounder Shahid Afridi. The star cricketer from Pakistan had previously retired from international cricket only to return a couple of times. Many argued for Messi to make a return just like Afridi has in the past.

Twitterati trolled Afridi for his previous retirements, and also questioned him on when he will eventually retire. Although the 36-year-old has retired from Tests and ODIs, he is still an active player in the T20 format.

Fans across the world urged Messi to take an inspiration from Afridi and make a comeback to the international circuit.

Here are some of the funniest tweets on Messi and Afridi:
