Babar Azam: Shaheen Afridi Expressed Anger Over Making Babar Captain

Shaheen Afridi Expressed Anger Over Making Babar Captain

Babar Azam: Now only two months are left for the start of the T20 World Cup and Pakistan has once again handed over the captaincy to Babar Azam for the limited-overs format. Shaheen Shah Afridi has been dismissed from the post of captain of the T20 team after just one series. Let us tell you that the selection committee itself had suggested Babar’s name for captaincy. Therefore, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) unanimously approved the selection of Babar. PCB Chairman Mohsin Naqvi said that Babar will captain the ODI and T20 teams.

Babar Azam: Babar left the captaincy after the defeat in the ODI World Cup

After the cup defeat in the ODI World Cup last year, Babar stepped down from captaining Pakistan in all three formats and was replaced by Shaheen. After Naqvi was elected as the PCB chairman, Babar’s name once again came into discussion for the post of captain. However, Babar laid down the condition that the duration of the captaincy should be fixed and the leadership of the Test team should also be handed over to me. However, Naqvi has made it clear that at present this decision has been taken only for limited-overs cricket. A decision will be taken later on giving Babar Azam the captaincy of the Test team. At present Shan Masood is the captain of the Test team.

Shaheen Shah Afridi got cheated!

He is completely unhappy with the way Shaheen Afridi was treated during the entire captaincy U-turn. He says that no one has talked to him nor is anyone ready to talk. However, hours after Babar Azam was re-appointed captain, a press release was issued in which Shaheen promised full support to Babar Azam as captain and said that leading Pakistan was “an honor”.

But perhaps this has not happened, because Shaheen Shah Afridi seems quite angry with this press release given by PCB. According to a report, Shaheen says that the Pakistan Cricket Board has given a fake statement. He has not given any such statement regarding Babar Azam and captaincy. It seems that, after removing him from the captaincy of the team and releasing fake statement, there will be tension and sourness in the relationship between these two superstars of Pakistan in the future. Now it remains to be seen what further statements the board and players give.
