Security Cover to Sri Lanka Team in Pakistan: Gautam Gambhir questions security arrangement, 'Kashmir rant shadows Karachi'
Cricketer-turned-politician Gautam Gambhir has taken to Twitter to mock the level of security provided to Sri Lanka's cricket team which is currently touring Pakistan for a three-match ODI and T20I series.
Gambhir has shared the video on Twitter and said "Itna Kashmir Kiya Ke Karachi bhool Gaye" (They rant about Kashmir so much that they forgot Karachi)."

In the video, two men seem to be mocking the security that has been deployed for the Sri Lankan team. Few vehicles were seen escorting the Islanders to the National Stadium in Karachi.
On Monday, Gambhir lashed out at Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan for his UNGA speech and termed it as 'role model for terrorists'.
"Sportspeople are supposed to be role models. Of good behaviour. Of Team spirit. Of ethics. Of the strength of character. Recently in the UN, we also saw a former sportsperson speak up.
