It seems like Kaneria posted the video to make some extent, let everybody know that he was a sufferer of relentless communal taunts from his Pakistan teammates, throughout his enjoying days.
The participant within the clip states, “If you’re a non-Muslim and also you turn out to be Muslim, regardless of no matter you do in life… straight to heaven.” The incident occurred after Pakistan misplaced the match to Sri Lanka by 7 wickets, leading to a 1-2 loss within the bilateral ODI collection. Dilshan stated one thing with a smile, and the participant replied with, “Then be prepared for the hearth.”
