Cricketer Shahid Afridi

It was a not a very happy homecoming for Shahid Afridi after Pakistan's Asia Cup triumph as he got into a scuffle with a fan at the airport.

Shahid Afridi slapped and punched at fans after an unruly crowd jostled his three-year-old daughter at the airport in Karachi on Friday.

Later he has apologized from his overwhelming fans over his outrageous attitude at Karachi airport. Afridi told on Saturday that he could not control his temper.

"I know what I did was wrong. I should have controlled myself. But I couldn't take it when my daughter was pushed to the ground," Afridi told 'Dawn News'.
