"Sportspeople are supposed to be role models. Of good behavior. Of Team spirit. Of ethics. Of strength of character. Recently in the UN, we also saw a former sportsperson speak up. As a role model for terrorists. @ImranKhanPTI should be excommunicated from sports community," Gambhir tweeted.

The Pakistan government had earlier in the day extended an invitation to the former Prime Minister for the inauguration of the corridor.
