Shahid Afridi Denies Allegations of Influencing Shaheen Afridi’s Candidacy for Pakistan Captaincy
Former Pakistan cricket captain, Shahid Afridi, has vehemently refuted recent assertions made by a local media outlet suggesting his endorsement of Shaheen Afridi as a prospective leader for the Pakistan cricket team. In a recent interview, Afridi expressed his exasperation at the dissemination of inaccurate information.
Afridi remarked, “While scrolling through my Twitter feed, I stumbled upon a news report claiming that I had stated Shaheen Afridi would make a better captain than Babar Azam. They even cited Lahore Qalandars winning a PSL trophy under his leadership,” Afridi clarified, chuckling as he dismissed the erroneous details.
The former all-rounder conveyed his bewilderment and dissatisfaction with how certain remarks are being misconstrue by the media. “I’m baffled as to why they’re attributing such statements to me, despite my willingness to share my opinions. I provide my viewpoint, but they interpret it in their own manner. In fact, I’m the one discouraging Shaheen from assuming the captaincy role,” he concluded.
It is worth noting that certain local media outlets have suggested the possibility of Shaheen Afridi considered for the vice-captaincy position in the ODI and T20I teams, potentially replacing Shadab Khan. Nevertheless, no official announcement regarding this matter has been issue by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
