Shahid Afridi, a former cricketer, recently made a shocking claim about the cricket board, claiming that the board failed to assist Shaheen Afridi with rehabilitation arrangements in London, England.
The former captain’s statement not only raised concerns about the board’s treatment of key national team players, especially so close to an important season, but it also shocked former cricketers.
Wasim Akram, meanwhile, has expressed his concerns about the situation, saying that the news is shocking because Shaheen is the country’s leading pacer and if the board can’t take care of him, it’s not a good sign.
The former pacer went on to say that the board should have paid for him to see the best knee surgeon in the world rather than him paying. treatment. “If it’s true, it’s still shocking,” he said.
The Pakistan Cricket Board responded to the statement earlier today, clarifying that they make all arrangements for the players because it is the board’s responsibility to look after them.
The 21-year-old pacer has been named to the squad for the T20 World Cup in Australia and will travel there directly from England.
It’s worth noting that Shaheen Afridi suffered a knee injury in the first Test against Sri Lanka in Galle, forcing him to miss the Asia Cup and a seven-match T20I series against England.
