Shaheen Afridi Upset over PCB’s Use of “Fake” Statement

Shaheen Afridi is upset after the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) released a statement that he did not validate. The statement came after he was removed as captain of the T20I team. The PCB declared Babar Azam as the captain for white-ball cricket, succeeding Shaheen Shah Afridi in T20Is.

Shaheen was already disappointed by his sudden removal from the T20I captaincy without a clear explanation. The PCB explained their decision in a press release, saying they wanted to manage Shaheen’s workload effectively to keep him performing at his best.

But in the same press release, there was a statement supposedly from Shaheen that he did not agree with. Sources say Shaheen contacted the board right away to complain about this misrepresentation. He thought about denying it on social media, but his friends advised against it, fearing it might make things worse. Still, Shaheen was deeply troubled by the incident.

The statement attributed to Shaheen thanked everyone for his time as captain and said he would support Babar Azam as the new captain. It emphasized their shared goal of making Pakistan’s cricket team the best in the world. Mohsin Naqvi, the chairman of the PCB, is planning to meet with Shaheen soon at Kakul.
