After registering a win against Australia on Sunday, Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi took a dig on former Aussie skipper and commentator Ian Chappell for his controversial remarks on Pakistan.

The all rounder took to Twitter to congratulate Pakistani players and taunted Chappell asking him if he watched the performance of the visiting team.

“ShabashPakistan, great captaincy and inns Hafeez, Well done JK, Malik, Did you watch Ian Chappell?,” he wrote.

Chappell was extremely critical of Pakistani side lost the Test series to Australia 3-0. He had questioned Pakistan's ability to compete and even suggested that Cricket Australia should not invite them to play Down Under till performances improve.  

Chappell's comments had created an uproar, with Pakistan's Test skipper Misbah-ul-Haq too hitting back.

"It is a very irresponsible and useless statement from him. Does it mean that Australia, who have been whitewashed by a young team in Sri Lanka, in India and even in the UAE by Pakistan, should not be invited to tour Asian countries," Misbah said.

Earlier, former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar too had questioned the logic behind Chappell's comments.
