Afridi is a cheat, serial offender: Hair

"Cheat is the only word for him," Hair said of Afridi, who was banned for two Twenty20 games for biting the ball during fifth ODI against Australia in Perth on Sunday.

"He has cheated before, he has cheated in this instance - he pleaded guilty - and I'm sure he will again. He is no angel. I remember that incident when he deliberately scratched the pitch when he thought everyone was looking the other way," Hair was quoted as saying by 'Daily Telegraph'.

Hair also said the after his sensational debut century Afridi has not achieved much success and was just an overrated player.

"He thought he would get away with it. Unfortunately he's become a highly over-rated player as well. His first innings at international level was a great century but he has lived off that and never really lived up to it," he said.

Former greats like Allan Border of Australia and Imran Khan of Pakistani along with current Pakistan skipper Mohammed Yousuf have also criticised Afridi for his ball biting act.
