Shahid Afridi lashes out at PCB amid reports of Shaheen’s removal from T20I captaincy

Shahid Afridi lashes out at PCB amid reports of Shaheen’s removal from T20I captaincy. There are extensive reports of a leadership transition in Pakistan before of the T20 World Cup 2024.

Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi has lashed out at the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) over allegations of a captaincy change ahead of the T20 World Cup 2024. Notably, the PCB changed leadership following their poor performance in the ODI World Cup 2023, removing Babar Azam as captain in all three formats.

Shan Masood was selected captain in the longest format, while Shaheen Afridi took over leadership of the T20Is. However, the fast bowler failed to impress in his first series. As the skipper lost four consecutive matches before winning the final game.

Commenting on captaincy change reports, Afridi, Shaheen’s father-in-law, suggested that the board should allow him some time to establish himself.

“I believe that if you’ve named someone as captain (Shaheen) and given him responsibility, you should also give him time. The main issue with our cricket system is that it changes everytime the faces on the board change. Whoever comes believes that whatever he is doing is the best for Pakistan cricket. “If you change the captain. Either the decision to appoint him was wrong or the decision to change him now is wrong. ” Afridi told Hindustan Times.
